COMMUNITY SERVICE COMMITTEE


GRANT REQUEST INSTRUCTIONS

The Kiwanis Club of Bowling Green is dedicated to changing the world…one child at a time. By working together, our club achieves what one person alone cannot. As a service club, we raise money and contribute volunteers to local causes that benefit youth and our community. The Community Service Committee is particularly focused on helping other non-profit agencies through grants and service projects. The grant program is one way we accomplish this purpose.
