On Retaining Membership throughout the summer

Fairfax KIWIN’S from Crystal Division raise $72 by selling Boba to help pay for next year’s membership fees. Great Job!

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR: Invite people not in the club to your events throughout the entire year! Anyone can join the club and pay for membership at any time!

1. Make sure to hold events consistently during the summer so the membership you already have doesn't die out. You can also try inviting people from your school not already in KIWIN'S to these events, so when club rush comes around they will want to join! 2. Motivate members by having an incentive. For example, if members attend 2 summer events, he or she can pie the president at the first meeting 3. Get all members involved. Implement a committee

MORE CLUB FEAUTRES

Fountain Valley KIWIN’S, Jet Division

On Innovative Service Projects Picking an Event:

FAST FACTS

1. YOF Grant Due Date: October 15th  You can request amounts from $100 to $2000 2. ERF’s are required for events that involve KIWIN’S Clubs outside their home club FOR MORE INFORMATION YOF and PTP Grant: Talk to your LTG or Governor Jade ERF: Find it on the District Website (kiwins.org) under General Resources

1. In my opinion, the best thing about KIWIN’S is that you are not limited what you do! You can help animals get adopted, serve food at the homeless shelter, clean up the beach or park, paint a mural at the community center, recycle cans and bottles at your school and donate the money to project eliminate, volunteer with the elderly, tutor kids at the library, host a crafts event at a local elementary school or library, help people create disaster kits, volunteer at the hospital, and the possibilities are endless! 2. Reach out to your sponsoring Kiwanis club to see if they have any events you can help with. 3. Work with other branches of the K Family. These include Kiwanis, Aktion club, Circle K, Key Club, Builder’s or K Kids.

Planning the Event: 1. Involve other people on your cabinet. It’s likely you aren’t superman or superwoman and can’t handle an entire event by yourself (if you can, then props to you, please teach me your ways). You can even start a committee solely dedicated to planning service projects!

2. Plan ahead! Give yourself at least 2 weeks to advertise the event at your meetings or over social media, so not only you can work out any details, but also so members can plan their schedules and sign up. 3. If you are involving other KIWIN’S clubs or Divisions (This includes Key Clubs since they are a separate District) you must fill out an ERF (Event Request Form) at least 3 weeks in advance. 4. Advertise! Post on social media, talk about the event at your meetings, and have your representatives personally message people to see if they would be interested in attending. 5. Follow up with your cabinet and members after the event to see what went right or went wrong. 6. If you are planning a big SERVICE event and need monetary assistance, apply for the Youth Opportunity Fund (YOF) grant or a Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP) Grant. Plan your event now. The YOF application is due October 15th! PTP grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis; however, it can take up to a month to get approval.

Governor’s Project 2015-2016: Project Eliminate 1. What is Project Eliminate? With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. Neonatal tetanus kills nearly 49,000 newborn children every year. 2. What is Neonatal tetanus? In many countries, deliveries take place in unhygienic circumstances, putting mothers and their newborn babies at risk for a variety of lifethreatening infections. If spores found in soil enter a wound that penetrates the skin and extends deeper than oxygen can reach, they germinate and produce a toxin that enters the bloodstream. This causes tetanus, which is a dangerous nerve ailment caused by the toxin of a common bacterium. 3. Facts 

Neonatal tetanus kills one baby every eleven minutes—approximately 49,000 newborns every year.

To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million must be immunized to protect themselves and their future newborns. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more.

It will take US$110 million— and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every

member of the Kiwanis family. 

We have currently raised $85 million.

District Goal: $20,000

4. What you can do! 

Raise awareness. o

Put up posters around school explaining what MNT is.

o

Have members and nonmembers pledge to Eliminate by signing a poster.

Raise Funds 

Hold fundraisers

Carry a jar around school and ask for donations

Set up a table during lunch asking for donations
