If you weren’t able to obtain the Early Bird Dues patch for your club, please don’t fret. It is important, however, to get dues in by the Regular Dues deadline of December 1. On the bright side, you can give your successor tips and tricks on how to complete the dues process more efficiently. You can check whether your club successfully paid dues yet by viewing the Dues Chart here. This chart gives helpful information like your Club ID and your division. Please remember that you can always call or email International with any questions at 1(800)KIWANIS ext. 411 or at memberservices@kiwanis.org. Besides International, I am always here to answer any questions. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions that weren’t answered by A Treasurer’s How-To: Membership Dues.

Yours forever in service,

Dance-A-Thon

Hold a soccer tournament to find the next David Beckham. This is a great way to raise money by selling snacks and entrance fees and to foster friendly competition.

Host a Dance-A-Thon to see who can dance the longest. People will be willing to pay if they know the money is going to a good cause and if they know they are dancing for a prize!

Talent Show Host a talent show and collect entrance fees. Be sure your acts are tasteful and be sure your show is worth watching!

Walks Attend a walk like the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes to raise awareness and to raise money through donations.

Penny Wars

Leaf Raking

Nothing beats friendly competition between grades in your school. Bring in one jar for each grade and collect change and bills to see which grade can collect the most money!

Go door to door asking for donations in return for raking the leaves in your neighbor’s front or back yard.

Farmer’s Market

Prom Dress Fundraiser

Trivia Night

Open a farmer’s market in your local community or your school and sell anything homemade or grown. You can also sell Thanksgiving themed dishes!

Ask for donated prom dresses from students or even local organizations and sell them for a profit. It’s never too early to start looking for the perfect dress!

Host a trivia night where people can pay to compete with other teams. Donated or low-cost items can be obtained as prizes.

District and International Dues Collection

Below you will find a breakdown of how every club member’s dues are used. The money is never gone to waste, and it is important to tell current and prospective members where their money is going. For the 2013 – 2014 service year, dues will be $12.50 in addition to the optional $1 – $3 that each club can add. The breakdown of dues is shown below. International

I hope to have more clubs earn the Early Bird Dues Patch for this service year. Please check out my How-To guide for dues for detailed steps on submitting dues and for a recommended timeline of completed actions. Click here to view my dues guide on Issuu. I will also create a chart to note which clubs have paid dues for the service year and when so that all Lieutenant Governors can remind their clubs to submit dues. 6


Every letter to Santa written and dropped off in specific locations will help the Makea-Wish Foundation. Macy's will donate $1 for every letter sent to Santa. Please participate in this easy fundraising opportunity. This can even report this as a fundraiser. Club advisors just have to send me an email confirming that 'X' amount of letters were dropped off. Click here for more information.

Please continue fundraising for The ELIMINATE Project. Clubs have until December 31, 2013 to submit a gift form and a check to the Kiwanis International Foundation if a club wishes to receive a special banner patch. More instructions can be found here. Please be sure to give a two week leeway (meaning you should send the check and gift form by December 15, 2013). Any funds collected after this date can still be sent, though. They will just be counted for The ELIMINATE Project in general instead of the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign.
