will benefit from such a grant.

3. All requests must be made through a Kiwanis Family organization.

4. All grant requests must be made in writing and include an email address, contact name, and phone
number using the cover sheet found on the website.

A copy of the request will be distributed to the appropriate committee members for recommendation to the full board.

6. All grant requests must be accompanied by a full project budget and scope of work.

7. Grant requests should be submitted 30 days before the next scheduled Foundation board meeting in
order to be considered at the upcoming meeting.

BOARD AUTHORITY AND GRANT APPROVAL:

The Board of Trustees of the Foundation shall, by a majority vote of a quorum of its members, approve any grant request. These policies shall be used as a guideline only and may be waived from time to time by the Board of Trustees of the Foundation upon their sole determination that a specific gift, contribution, grant or donation, while not meeting the above guidelines, is in the best interest of the Rocky Mountain District Kiwanis Foundation.
