PTP Grant Application
As part of our major focus, the Kiwanis Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation provides Pediatric Trauma Prevention (PTP) grants to assist Kiwanis clubs and divisions and Service Leadership Programs (SLP) clubs in financing new service projects which address pediatric trauma and injury prevention. Grants will be given for service projects which seek to prevent and/or treat pediatric trauma – defined as sudden, unintentional physical injury.
New projects are defined as projects conducted for the first time by the Kiwanis club, SLP club or Kiwanis division applying for the grant. When the service project is part of a larger event or community-wide project, the Foundation must know what portion of the event/project is the Kiwanis club project. To qualify for a grant, the Foundation requires club service hours be committed to the project. Further, for Kiwanis clubs and divisions, club/division funds must be spent on the project.
PTP grants may be awarded as follows:
• a single Kiwanis club (matching start-up funds, up to $2,000 per project)
• a single SLP club (start-up funds, up to $250 per project)
• two or more clubs working together on a single project (matching start-up funds, up to $5,000 per project)
• a single Kiwanis division in which all clubs in the division are working together on the project (matching start-up funds, up to $5,000 per project).
The Foundation Board of Directors established these maximums to ensure an optimum number of grants are available each year.
