Funding Policy

The New London Kiwanis Club is committed to support and fund projects aimed at improving our communities and our youth.

Our Funding Policy provides an accountable, fair, and equitable process for both the organization requesting funds and the New London Kiwanis Club allocating funds. This process allows for accountability for all parties.

Funding Process

Applicants are invited to submit a written application for funding at any time. General requests are reviewed each month.

To meet the monthly review, applications must be received by the first Tuesday of the month.

Applications are available at newlondonkiwanis.org and should be submitted to the Funding Request Coordinator. The Funding Request Coordinator position is to be fulfilled by the Vice President of the Club. It is the responsibility of the Coordinator to make sure applications are complete and distributed to Board Members for review in a timely manner. The Board of Directors shall receive information regarding requests prior to Board meetings.

It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors to rank applications and grant funds. The Board will evaluate applications fairly utilizing a format designed to measure requests value to the community and group discussion

Once an allocation is made it is the responsibility of the Treasurer to distribute funds. All grantees are invited to visit a club meeting and are required to report on project success. If funds are not used they are to be returned to the club.
