Lineweaver noted that Kiwanis generally recognizes grant applications from projects that serve residents of the San Ramon Valley, although nonprofit organizations need not be located in the Valley itself. Specific eligibility criteria are listed at www.kiwanis-srv.org.
In 2007, 38 separate nonprofit organizations received grants, including the Bay Area Crisis Nursery, Discovery Counseling Center, Down Syndrome Connection, Loaves and Fishes, Meals on Wheels, the Taylor Family Foundation, Valley Humane Society, Hospice of the East Bay, Museum of the San Ramon Valley, Senior Helpline Services, Monument Crisis Center, Street Smarts, and the San Ramon Valley YMCA.
Funds are raised by the Kiwanis Club through staging the annual Danville 4th of July Parade and an annual golf tournament held each April at Round Hill Country Club.
Applications are on the Web site or call Lineweaver at 837-3665. The deadline for submissions is Monday, March 10. Winners will be announced at a Grants Award Luncheon on May 22.
The Kiwanis Club of San Ramon Valley holds weekly luncheon meetings at noon Thursdays at Round Hill Country Club in Alamo. The lunch is a good chance for prospective members to learn more about the organization.
