Kiwanis of San Ramon Valley has awarded nearly $790,000 through their grants program since 1995. In 2022, Grants totaled $39,300, ranging from $500 to $2,500.

Funds for the annual grants program are raised by the San Ramon Valley Kiwanis Foundation, primarily through the solicitation of sponsorships of the Kiwanis 4th of July Parade in Danville, which the Kiwanis Club has been organizing and conducting since 1975. Grant applications are solicited in February of each year and awarded in May with an additional several thousand dollars held in reserve to provide emergency grants and fund additional Kiwanis community projects throughout the year.
