The Kiwanis of Michigan Foundation has many awards that provide members the opportunity to acknowledge another Kiwanian’s generous service to the community as well as help fund the work of our Kiwanis of Michigan Foundation in support of hospitalized children. The Foundation Trustees encourage you to reward your Club Members with a Kiwanis of Michigan Foundation Award!

This is the highest award presented by the Kiwanis of Michigan Foundation. This gift can be presented by a Kiwanis club or Kiwanis group to honor any other Kiwanis member. The recipient of the award must be recommended by at least 10 Kiwanis members with an article explaining his or her achievements in Kiwanis. This write up with a photograph (5X7) is placed in the book of honor. The book is on permanent display in the District Office. The recipient also receives a personal plaque and tie tac/lapel pin. Funds earned by this award are placed in the Foundations Endowment Fund. The interest and dividends earned from this gift will help fund our foundation forever!
Frank O. Staiger was an exceptional District Secretary for 26 years prior to 1960. He was instrumental in helping make the organization what it is today. The Foundation honored
him with this tribute for all his contributions to Kiwanis and the Kiwanis of Michigan Foundation.

THE J. DOUGLAS ALEXANDER AWARD | for a gift of $750.00
The recipient can be recognized by a club, an individual or one can purchase this award themselves. The award can be given to those who are not Kiwanis members. The recipient will receive a plaque and a medallion for the gift. A brass plate will be placed on the permanent plaque in the District office. The purchaser of this award chooses between having their contribution placed in the Foundation’s endowment fund or in the Foundation’s operational account.
This award was created to honor J. Douglas Alexander, Past District Secretary of 16 years who was very instrumental in expanding the goals of the District and The Kiwanis of Michigan Foundation even further.

This award is only available to be given to or purchased by the recipient of an original J. Douglas Alexander Award as the next step of the award. This enables one to further recognize someone for additional contributions to Kiwanis and our hospitalized children.
