The Kiwanis Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation has long supported the clubs in our District to enhance their impact in communities by providing generous club, multi-club and division grants.
Our Foundation has championed the next generation of Kiwanis leadership through their support of our Service Leadership Programs (SLP), Key Leader Scholarships and the Kenneth C. Forror Scholarship Fund.
The Foundation continues to build better futures for our children by providing Pediatric Trauma Prevention grants to our Kiwanis and SLP clubs and through innovative programs like the Partner Hospital Program.

Required Minimum Distributions
Annual withdrawals are required to be taken from traditional retirement accounts when individuals reach age 70 ½. These required withdrawals are referred to as a Required Minimum Distribution or RMD. The penalty for not taking your RMD is a tax of 50% on the amount that was not withdrawn in time.
Individuals who do not require the distribution for living expenses have an alternative which will both lower their taxable income and support the Kiwanis Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation.
To learn more, read our FAQs regarding Required Minimum Distributions.
