The District Foundation is the “fundraising arm” of the LaMissTenn Kiwanis District.  It is charged with finding financial ways to support scholarships and leadership training of the Service Leadership Programs, and meaningful service projects of the member Kiwanis clubs.  These projects are in consonance with and support the Objects of Kiwanis International. 

The mission of the Kiwanis District Foundation is to provide financial assistance for Kiwanis projects and programs within our District.
