Kiwanis Club of Redlands Foundation

The Kiwanis Club of Redlands has long been involved in helping college and university students by providing scholarships to help offset the costs of continuing their education.  

The Scholarship Foundation was formally established in 1981 with the help of long time members: Urban Derkum, Luther Holden, attorney Ed Hales, and many others.  It was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit.  The first scholarship provided by the new foundation was named the Rich Kennedy Memorial Scholarship.  Rich was a club member and an outstanding community member {renowned for performing children's puppet shows} who had just lost a courageous fight against cancer.

Ellen Schaunaman of Redlands High School helped the Foundation to establish the criteria used to select scholarship recipients based on scholastic record, participation in school and community activities, and clear goals for the future.

Each spring, three scholarships are awarded to graduating students at Redlands High School, Redlands East Valley High School and one at Grove High School.  Since the first scholarship was awarded, scholarships totaling in excess of $452,000 have been provided to local high school graduates.  The Foundation is looking forward to adding additional scholarships when the new Citrus Valley High School has its first graduating class in 2012.

In addition, Challenge Grants are awarded at Orangewood High School and Redlands Adult School.  The Martin and Dorothy Munz COMPACT Scholarship is awarded at Redland High School. 

Donations to the Foundation for scholarships are welcome at any time. You are invited to become a member of the Foundation Legacy Circle.
