How to Help
The Cal-Nev-Ha Children’s Fund has long supported the clubs in our District to enhance their impact in communities by providing generous club, multi-club and division grants.
We’ve championed the next generation of Kiwanis leadership by providing our Service Leadership Program members with scholarships and leadership training.
And we continue to build better futures for our children by providing Pediatric Trauma Prevention grants to our Kiwanis and SLP clubs and through innovative programs like our Partner Hospital Program.

Required Minimum Distributions
Generally, the IRS requires individuals to make annual withdrawals from their traditional retirement accounts when they reach age 73 (though any IRA owner who is age 59 ½ may make a distribution). These required withdrawals are referred to as a Required Minimum Distribution or RMD. The penalty for not taking the withdrawal is normally 25 percent of the amount which should have been withdrawn.
Individuals who do not require the distribution for living expenses have an alternative that will both lower their taxable income and support the Cal-Nev- Ha Children’s Fund by making a qualified charitable distribution. With the higher standard deduction allowed under the new tax law, in most instances the tax-free transfer will be more advantageous.
