All Kiwanians are thrilled with our Government of Canada's decision to donate up to $2.5 Million in matching funds to our global service project: ELIMINATE.

Beginning February 25, 2015 (and continuing to December 31, 2016), all money raised for our ELIMINATE project, and sent to our Kiwanis Foundation of Canada, will be matched by the Government of Canada up to $2.5 Million!
