Mission Statement

The Santa Ana Kiwanis Foundation provides scholarships, facilities and supportive programs to remove barriers to academic success and social fulfillment for low income, special needs and at risk youths in Santa Ana

Background Statement

The Foundation was incorporated on September 15, 1954.  It was organized by the members of the Santa Ana Kiwanis Club, which dates back to 1920.  The Foundation serves as a vehicle to accomplish the charitable functions that are focused on children

Impact Statement

Our scholarship fund furnishes 5 students per year with an 8,000 scholarship award, paid over two years.  Our students are from Santa Ana College who are continuing to a four year university.  Our selection process is very detailed, where all applicants are interviewed by the committee.  Selection is made based upon scholastic achievement, need and present and future benefits to the community.  
In addition to our scholarship program, our Foundation has its Youth/Handicapped fund.  We fund a variety of programs benefiting children in Santa Ana, CA, focusing on those with economic hardship or special physical needs.  As an example, last year we were allowed to send a dozen of the most severely handicapped students from a local high school to Disneyland for the day.  Due to their circumstances, it is doubtful that any of these children would have ever been able to do this. 
Another example is our annual Target shopping spree.  We take approximately thirty of the most financially impacted students from three elementary schools, and we take them Christmas shopping at a particular Target store on a particular morning.  They use a budget of $100 per child to buy presents for their family members.  A member of our club accompanies each child to help them select their gifts, and to augment the $100 should they exceed it.  

Needs Statement

We financially sponsored a barrier-free park in Santa Ana at Thornton Park.  This park enable handicapped children access to all the outdoor equipment no matter what their limitations.  The park needs constant repairs.  Last year we spent over $8.000 to maintain the Park for use by all residents of Santa Ana, including the handicapped children.

CEO Statement

The Kiwanis Club of Santa Ana is part of an extensive network of Kiwanis Clubs in almost every city in the country, and is a branch of Kiwanis International. Kiwanis International’s operating theme is, “Serving the Children of the World.” The Kiwanis Club of Santa has adapted that theme and has tailored it to, “changing lives in our community one child at a time.”  Dr. Alberto Manetta

Board Chair Statement

We are very proud of the programs which we offer through our foundation. The Scholarship Program has been in place for sixty years. We have provided well of one million dollars in scholarships to needy and deserving students who are transferring to four your schools from Santa Ana College.  We try to maintain contact with all of our scholarship recipients and we welcome them back to our club from time to time so that they can tell us how the scholarship has benefited them.

We also support and fund a number of programs under our Youth Handicapped Fund including trips to Target Stores for 20 plus students who purchase Christmas presents for their family members with funds which we provide to them.

I have been a member of the Foundation for long period of time and have observed how the various programs impact on the children from Santa Ana.  It provides a great deal of satisfaction to make these observations and watch how the children react to our programs.

Paul Tonkovich, Vice President Foundation
