Financial Grants

2019-2021 Financial Grants of the Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg

Thanks to our Kiwanis Family volunteers and local businesses, who provide sponsorship, our Kiwanis Club is able to give 100% of the net proceeds to local organizations in support of their efforts with children in the community.

Part of the proceeds also support our club’s Service Leadership Programs (William & Mary CKI; Jamestown, Lafayette, and Walsingham Key Clubs; the Aktion Club for adults with developmental disabilities; K-Kids at Matthew Whaley Elementary School; and Bring Up Grades programs in several elementary schools).
