Of course, $245,000 in 1978 does not have the same value today. We need to INCREASE our endowment so we can better support our signature program in New England. "Strive for Five" was introduced in 2007 as a first step "Toward Topping Ten." Truly, a $10-million endowment is where we need to be!
Please give generously.
In 1978, the Kiwanis Foundation of New England voted to support a pediatric trauma center at Boston's Floating Hospital for Children with $245,000 annually. Fundraising continued for many years, reaching this goal, until in 1990, an endowment fund was created to raise $3-million to yield $245,000.

Here's How To Give
John D. Morton Society
Being a member of the Morton Society will distinguish you as supporting the Foundation with an unrestricted gift. Donations start at $25 to receive a Morton Pin. A uniquely-numbered Morton Medal will be presented to you with a cash gift of $5,000. You can also receive a Morton Medal with a "legacy gift" of $5,000 or more. Simple wording in a will, or the naming of KFNE in an insurance policy can accomplish a "legacy gift." Get a list of Morton Medal recipients and learn more here.
Annual Gifts from Kiwanis Clubs & Individuals
CLUBS: The Foundation counts on local Kiwanis Clubs to continue an annual gift. Program fees, emerging needs, and overhead are all real expenses that need to be addressed. KFNE truly appreciates an annual gift of $10.00 per member or a minimum of $150.00 if your club has fewer than 15 members. Annual Gift Form
INDIVIDUALS: Become a Sustaining Member with an individual donation of $100, $50 or $25.
