Night of Giving
Each quarter, the 25+ Kiwanians Who Care members nominate 501(c) nonprofit organizations who serve youth in Indiana for inclusion in our Night of Giving. Three are selected to share their mission, impacts and stories during a 5-7 minute presentation. Members present vote to determine the organization that will receive a $100 donation from each member – totalling more than $5,000 – to put toward the organization’s work.
Nominations may be made during a brief window beginning about the 15th of December (for the January Night of Giving), March (for the April Night of Giving) and September (for the October Night of Giving). Because of Kiwanis’ long history with Riley Hospital for Children, July’s event supports their initiatives.
We welcome philanthropic friends and neighbors to join us in our Night of Giving by becoming a member of 25+ Kiwanians Who Care, nominating organizations and participating in the Night of Giving each quarter. Download and submit your membership application here.
