The Kiwanis International Foundation administers the Youth Opportunities Fund on behalf of Key Club International. By awarding grants for charitable activities, the fund enables Key Clubs to benefit others by utilizing interest income. It enables Key Club members to take an overall view of the school, community, and world in order to take needed action. Every club will have two opportunities a year to submit an application for grants from the Youth Opportunities Fund. The grant will offer a chance to do service that will have a greater effect on society. The Key Club Guidebook under Board Policies contains all of the instructions for completing an application. In April, all applications will be accessible and sent from an International Trustee. The 2023-24 application deadlines are October 15, 2023 and March 1, 2024.
This is an amazing chance to receive funding for your club's fundraisers and service projects for the year. I wholeheartedly urge your club to make an impact by applying for the Youth Opportunities Fund!
