  • Youth protection online training

    New Kiwanis Youth Protection Guidelines took effect October 1, requiring clubs to educate members, request background checks and report troubling behavior to the proper authorities. Now there’s online training to make protecting the 300,000 kids in our care much easier.

    Club leaders who plan to instruct club members about the Youth Protection Guidelines can use this online training to get the background they need to answer questions. The online module, similar to those used by club officers to learn about their positions, also can bring members up to speed who are not able to attend the club training in person.

    Find this and other youth protection resources at or contact the Kiwanis member services team at 1-800-KIWANIS, ext. 411, and at for details.

  • IRS Form 990

    The IRS Form 990 is an informational tax form that most tax-exempt organizations must file annually with the Internal Revenue Service. The form gives the IRS an overview of your Kiwanis club or foundation’s activities, governance and financial information.

    Club and foundation treasurers are required to file one of three Form 990 reports based on gross receipts on the 15th of the month, 5 months after the end of the fiscal year. For example, if your group’s fiscal year ends September 30, file your report by February 15, 2014. You’ll find steps to follow and details about determining which form fits your group on the Kiwanis website.

    The IRS website also includes tools and resources. Kiwanis International does not have records of your group’s IRS history, but you can contact the Kiwanis International Office’s Finance Department by email at or call 1-800-549-2647, ext. 153 or 146, for guidance.
