Circle K members love to serve, and grants from the Tomorrow Fund can help them do just that. From October 1 to December 1, CKI clubs are encouraged to apply for grants ranging from US$200 to US$2,000 to help conduct service projects that create a meaningful impact on their campuses and in communities.

In recent years, clubs have used grants for projects that improve the lives of school children, families without homes, cancer patients and people who are food insecure. Clubs have also received grants to promote sustainable lifestyles and improve the environment.

The Tomorrow Fund is supported by direct donations and donations for Carthage-Pullman Society memberships and Sapphire Circle honoraries. It is held within the Kiwanis Children’s Fund.
