I am Gary Jander, and I am honored to have been elected to serve as President of your Cal-Nev-Ha Children’s Fund for the next two years. I am excited to continue the long legacy of impact, the future impact your CNH Children’s Fund will have on the children of California, Nevada and Hawaii, and the opportunities your CNH Children’s Fund can offer to our members’ clubs so that they can continue to provide service that matters to the children in their communities. As you peruse our website, please consider contributing to our work benefitting youth in California Nevada and Hawaii.
Since 1965, your CNH Children’s Fund has been providing unparalleled enrichment of our youth. As a club, please consider supporting your CNH Children’s Fund by making a Founder’s Day gift that is substantial to your club. Your club’s gift provides young adults with leadership training, awards scholarships to students, funds our Pediatric Trauma Programs for our Kiwanis clubs and local Partner Hospitals, and finances grants that specifically impact the youth in your local community. For more information and to make a gift, please visit cnhfoundation.org/foundersday.
When planning impactful club projects in your community, consider whether a grant from your CNH Children’s Fund would help increase that impact. You can download grant rules and applications at https://cnhkiwanis.app.box.com/v/Grantmaking.
I invite you to join Donna and me as a Visionary Fellowship member by donating $500 or more to our YES! Initiative. You can begin that journey by making a one-time gift of at least $500 to the YES! Initiative, or by making a monthly gift of $50. Kiwanis clubs can also participate in our YES! Initiative by joining our Vision Club with a cumulative donation of $1,965 or more to the YES! Initiative. For more information and to donate, please visit cnhfoundation.org/yes.
Finally, if you are visiting us from outside our organization, welcome! Please explore our website and discover the impact we are making in communities across California, Nevada, and Hawaii. I invite you to also contribute to our work by making a financial donation to one of our programs and by considering offering Kiwanis your time and talent by joining one of our member clubs. To find a Kiwanis club near you, visit https://www.kiwanis.org/clubs/find-a-club.
I want the thank you again for this opportunity to lead and invite you to share in the impact your Cal-Nev-Ha Children’s Fund is making for the youth of California, Nevada and Hawaii.
