2018 Kiwanis Foundation of Atlanta Grants
Applications for a 2018 Grant from the Kiwanis Foundation of Atlanta will open on July 30, 2018.  The Foundation was founded in 1953 as a nonprofit organization to raise funds from members of the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta to provide financial support to charitable institutions in which the Club has an interest.  A major commitment of the Foundation is to provide ongoing support for organizations serving the needs of children and youth in our community.  Priority is given to organizations within metropolitan Atlanta, and no grants are made outside the state of Georgia. Active involvement of a current member of Kiwanis Club of Atlanta is preferred. Grants are typically in the range of $1500 to $3500.
Grants are not made to private, primary, or secondary schools, or to individual churches or congregations.  The Foundation does not have a religious purpose, but does permit grants to organizations with a religious affiliation for programs serving underprivileged youth.
If you would like to receive a grant application packet, AFTER JULY 30TH, you can download one from the website or contact KiwanisClubAtlanta@gmail.comDEADLINE:  GRANT APPLICATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED BY, TUESDAY, AUGUST 28, 2018 OR RECEIVED IN THE OFFICE BY NOON ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2018.  NO EXTENSIONS.
Member Networking - Have a Spotlight Shine on You!
Do you want to let the members of our club know more about you and your business?  Do you want to network and cultivate more business contacts?  If you answered yes, then you need to sign up to do a "Member Spotlight" at one of our club meetings!
Spotlights are done every 2nd and 4th Tuesday luncheon meeting (and the occasional 5th) each month.  You have two minutes to showcase your business and tell the other members how you can benefit them!  To get on the schedule, just email Karen at
We Need YOU to be a part of the "Lunch Bunch"!
Our club is looking for about 6 individuals who are willing to become part of the "Lunch Bunch" team!  Team members will help the lunch meetings operate smoothly by working the a/v board and sounds system in the back, ensuring that any a/v the speakers use are properly set up, and working the microphones during the Q&A sessions!
While no technical experience is necessary, volunteers should feel comfortable and confident adjusting sound levels and setting up the computer for power point and video presentations.  And the benefit is a dedicated comfy seat at the a/v table during lunch!  wink
Please contact Karen at to sign up!
Kiwanis Club of Atlanta new buffet luncheon feature
Beginning on Tuesday, May 29th, our club's luncheon meetings will feature a new buffet format, enabling members and guests to choose from both hot and cold items.  All current hot and special meals that you may be getting will be discontinued unless you notify the office by May 24th.  Again, if you have any dietary restrictions, or would like to continue to receive a portioned hot meal, please notify by May 24th.  This new lunch buffet will be a great way to enjoy the foods you like and provide the flexibility to folks as they arrive at various times.
In addition to the lunch buffet option, from time to time, we will have our lunch in the Ann Cramer Room, on the 2nd floor of the Loudermilk Center.  It is a more intimate meeting space and makes our group look HUGE!  smiley  If the Loudermilk Center is able to sell the Ballroom space for a price that covers our lunch and nets them a profit, then they will do it.  There are several of our larger meetings that we have each year that are protected and will never move. So no worries there!  We thank all of you for your support and understanding and helping us to maintain a good relationship with the Loudermilk Center and the United Way of Metro Atlanta.
Member Spotlights
Just in case you missed the last couple Member Spotlights at the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta luncheon meeting, we have listed the last few below.  The next time you need someone with their expertise, please, "Do Business with a Kiwanian!"

Kiwanis Club of Atlanta Car Decals
Don't get the BOOT!  Be sure your car has a Kiwanis Club of Atlanta car decal properly displayed on your vehicle.
The security company contracted by Lanier Parking will be booting all cars that are parked in the reserved parking places and that do not have a valid decal on their car identifying them as attending the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta luncheon.  So if you arrive prior to 11:45 am on Tuesday, please make sure you have a parking decal on your car.  You can get a decal from Karen at the luncheon meeting, and then place it on the right back window (passenger side) from inside your car.  They are static cling, so easy to put on and take off!
