Foundation Awards


The Kiwanis Indiana Foundation has established a recognition award for presenting to anyone who has gone “above and beyond” in serving their Kiwanis club, their community or others. It could be awarded to an outgoing President, Lt. Governor, or other club officer – someone who has brought in several new members, a member who has taken on and completed a new service project – or anyone else you or your club feel have accomplished great things.

The Honoree will receive a beautifully designed Eagle lapel pin and a certificate with the $250 donation to the Kiwanis Indiana Foundation.

J.L. McCulloch AWARD

A personal gift of $1,000 to the Kiwanis Indiana Foundation, Inc., by an individual entitles him or her to the J.L. McCulloch Award.  The recipient of this award is recognized with a framed medallion, a ribboned medallion, and either a lapel pin or a pendant. 

This is the Indiana District’s most prestigious award and is named for our first Kiwanis Indiana District Governor.  The receiving of this award by its honored recipients has left a legacy to the service and good works begun by the man for whom it is named.
