Kiwanis Club of Tunkhannock Forms Community Fund
The Kiwanis Club of Tunkhannock recently established the Tunkhannock Kiwanis Community Fund with The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains. The fund is a permanent endowment that will provide grants to help support the Kiwanis Club’s various community projects. “The Kiwanis Club of Tunkhannock has a long tradition of supporting a broad array of local activities, and this new endowment will help the club continue that tradition and possibly expand that support,” said Rebecca Corby, club President.
The Kiwanis Club of Tunkhannock supports such community activities as the Tunkhannock Area School District’s Builder’s Club, reading programs for local Pre-Schools, installing community Christmas lights and providing Christmas trees to needy families, as well as the Wyoming County Safety Cupboard, the Wyoming County Resource Center, and also various youth programs at the Endless Mountains Nature Center.
“This new endowment will provide a reliable and growing base of funding that the club will be able to utilize for many generations to come,” said Peter Quigg, Community Foundation president. To help enhance its value and its granting ability, this new Tunkhannock Kiwanis Community Fund can always receive additional tax-deductible donations, which can be sent to The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains; 207 Lake Avenue Montrose, PA 18801 or made online at www.community-foundation.org.
