The Kiwanis Club of Mountain View Foundation is currently accepting grant requests that meet a critical health or human care need in the city of Mountain View.
Grant awards should address the needs of children under the age of 18 or seniors 60 and over and have objectives that are time-specific and measurable.
Organizations submitting grants must have a 501(c)(3) status. Proof of such status with a copy of the federal tax-exempt notification letter is required when submitting a grant request.
The foundation may help fund capital campaign projects that are consistent with the club’s priority to provide services to low-income children, adolescents or seniors. The deadline for submission of grant applications is Dec. 1.
Mail applications to the Kiwanis Club of Mountain View, PO Box 607, Mountain View 94042.
Applications must have proper postage to be considered. Grant applications that are postmarked after Dec. 1 or delayed beyond the Dec. 1 deadline due to improper postage will not be considered.
“The award selection process is difficult because most of the programs address a valuable service to those genuinely in need of assistance, and offer a laudable approach to providing such worthwhile service,” said Kiwanis Club member Ralph Cowden.
The Foundation Grants Committee reviews all applications in accordance with the guidelines and focuses on services to the Kiwanis target group of children, adolescents, and seniors with the emphasis on benefiting the greatest number in the local community given club resources.
Grant awards are usually presented during a luncheon in January or February.
