I am so proud to be serving as your 2018-19 Rocky Mountain District Foundation President and excited to share several new ventures that we hope will allow us to do even more for our Rocky Mountain District Kiwanis clubs and their student leadership programs. 


​At our October board meeting, we provided funding for our district’s Circle K program for college members as well as $10,000 in seed money to the Castle Rock Impact Club to fund a new Key Leaders program. We approved two grants for an elementary school literacy project and for emergency medical equipment at a high school and are always seeking ways to assist the district’s 80+ clubs.  A reminder that grant submissions are due a month in advance of our quarterly meetings so please hit the Grants tab above to learn more about deadlines and requirements.

A Message from the foundation PRESIDENT



​Several Foundation Board members will represent the Rocky Mountain Kiwanis District at a rally in Denver when nonprofits participating in Colorado Gives Day unite at the Denver Capitol to generate excitement for Colorado Gives Day on December 4. Colorado Gives Day is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round website featuring more than 2,300 nonprofits. The Dec. 4 24-hour movement is a chance to increase the value of any donation, thanks to a $1 million incentive fund created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. The fund increases the value of every dollar donated proportionally. Give now at https://www.coloradogives.org/RockyMountainDistrictKiwanisFoundation. 

As you engage in holiday shopping, remember that the RMD Kiwanis Foundation participates in Amazon Smile, which sends our Foundation .5% on every purchase you make without changing the cost to you!  Support us by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com

Perhaps your New Year’s resolution plans will include getting your estate in order. If so, consider putting the RMD Kiwanis Foundation into your will as Governor-Elect Derek Manly and his wife recently committed. In doing so, you’ll leave a legacy of giving to generations of Rocky Mountain District children!

Thank you to our new board members Beth Alessio, Stephanie Gausch, Steven Pawlak, and Tom Henschen for agreeing to give their time and talents in service to the children and the communities of the Rocky Mountain District.


Yours in Service,
Cora Zaletel
