Background Statement

   The Kiwanis Club of Siesta Key was founded in 2001 by men and women on Siesta Key to provide help to children in the Sarasota metro-region who had important unmet needs - typically shelter, health issues, education problems, and literacy. Recognizing that the issues to be addressed often required funding and looking to the future, in 2003 the Club established the Siesta Key Kiwanis Club Foundation. In 2014 the Siesta Key Kiwanis Club merged with the South Sarasota Kiwanis Club retaining the Siesta Key name. Currently the Club’s membership includes men and women of various ages, some retired, many working; all committed to addressing the unmet needs of children.

   The Siesta Key Club is now a service club with 40 members and a modest but growing Foundation. Our resources are members’ time and its Foundation money. This gives the Club an advantage in that it can address its mission in two ways:  through direct member service and/or financial support. Some projects require no funding, some have members contributing time and their own money, and some require only money. By policy and by law, no Foundation funds are used for the benefit of members or for the Club’s administration. All money donated or raised through fundraisers goes directly to our Foundations’ accounts.

   The Kiwanis Club of Siesta Key has a Board (Officers and Directors) elected annually by its members under the Club's by-laws. Elected Board members serve on both the Club and Foundation Boards. The governing documents of Club and Foundation are reviewed and approved by the parent organization, Kiwanis International, with headquarters in Cincinnati Ohio. Each Kiwanis Club is part of a local Division with typically 8-9 clubs, and a District of all clubs in a large area such as Florida. Each Club is expected to focus on the unmet needs of children is its geographic area, although Kiwanis International has initiated world wide projects such as a neonatal tetanus elimination.

 
   Many of our members serve on non-profit Boards in Sarasota  increasing our visibility to needs and opportunities for investment  aligned with our mission.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

Several years ago, a friend I admire asked me to come to a lunch at his Kiwanis Club to see if I wanted to join.  I had never participated in a community service club, and my fears included time commitments, awkward and uncomfortable activities, and perhaps, a serious Boy Scout atmosphere to be always trustworthy, clean, reverent, etc., while helping others in distress.  By the end of lunch, most of those fears were dispelled, and I realized that enthusiasm, raucous laughter, and irreverence seemed to be much in favor.   Soon after that lunch I joined because of the friendly people I liked and a mission of helping children that I value.

I have stayed in the club and deepened my commitment because I am continually impressed with the Kiwanis International organization, the value of the work we do, and the dedication of my fellow club members to make a difference in the lives of the children in our community. Kiwanis International is a vast organization of 600,000 volunteers in 8,000 clubs around the world. It gives its members structure and support, but the real work is what Kiwanians do in their hometowns. We are a family of clubs centered around local Kiwanis Clubs who in turn sponsor student clubs starting with Circle K in colleges and running down the age categories to Kiwanis Kids Clubs (K-Kids) in elementary school. In K-Kids, students in grades 3 through 5 learn about leading and managing a service club and finding ways to give back to their community. Key Club for high school students is the largest high school community service organization in the world and in some places, is better recognized than the sponsoring Kiwanis organization itself.

The challenges for our club are the same as for most community services clubs—raising money and finding new members. Surveys have shown that that our competition for new members is not other service clubs. Rather, we are competing with the desire of the general public for self-improvement. This includes working out at the gym, taking educational courses, and travel to learn about other cultures. This may mean that the urge to give back to our community can get shuffled to a lower priority.

As a Florida service club we benefit from the constant pool of retirees here who look for ways to stay active and participate in a worthy cause. We get an added benefit as Kiwanians when our fellow club members from the north come down to Sarasota for the winter and look for local Kiwanis Clubs to join for the season.

Raising money is mainly limited by our imaginations and energy levels. We are a group open to new ideas and possibilities, and doing the same old event, even a highly profitable one, can quickly burnout the enthusiasm of the organizers who carry the load year after year. We are after the holy grail of fundraising where there is novelty, fun, a reasonable amount of work, and piles of gold at the end to fill our coffers. We end up with a mixture of old and new events to keep up the interest and energy of the group. Creating a unique and profitable event is our goal to generate funds as well as interest and new members in our club.

Programs
Description Bringing Up Grades - recognition of elementary school students who are not yet on the school's scholastic Honor Roll but who are actively striving to improve their grade performance.  Students are nominated by teachers and recognized for their success at school assemblies several times a year.  BUGs students receive a certificate with their name printed on it together with an additional memento such as a pin or gift coupon.  Note, the intent of the BUGs program is to broaden recognition for individual academic achievement in an appropriate way.  It is not meant to replace existing recognitions.
Budget $200
Category Education, General/Other Elementary & Secondary Education
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Short Term Success

In the spring of 2015 our BUGS program was implemented in the Wilkinson Elementary School (Sarasota FL) at the invitation of the school's leadership. Before the first BUGs award assembly some teachers doubted the program's value. By the second BUGs assembly held weeks later, teachers had lined up behind the program. The feed back we received was that the students’ interest and participation in classroom work had noticeably increased and teachers were actively building on the changes.  This result is in line with the experience of other Kiwanis Clubs in the U.S. that sponsor BUGs programs.

The second BUGs year at Wilkinson it appeared to us that more parents were turning out for the awards assemblies. That observation was confirmed by Mr.Muth, the school’s principal. Increased parental interest has been observed in other schools where BUGs is part of the schools’ program to recognize academic achievement.

Long Term Success

Clearly there are many factors in student scholastic achievement, recognition is one.  Recognition itself has many dimensions: Honor Roll, teacher praise, and parent encouragement among them. For many students BUGS is the first public recognition for scholastic achievement available to them. The experience at Wilkinson Elementary has been positive – a noticeable increase in students’ scholastic enthusiasm and an increase in observed parental interest.

Longer term, we anticipate the benefits at Wilkinson Elementary will track those at other schools where a local Kiwanis Club has worked with administrations to implement the BUGs program, sustained scholastic achievement and parental interest in their children's education.

In Florida those benefits would be reflected in Florida State student achievement tests and school rankings.

Program Success Monitoring
BUGS is a Kiwanis program used in many elementary schools.  The proven ways of measuring success are:
  1.  Grade improvement - increases in Honor Roll students during and across successive years.
  2.  Attendance at awards assemblies where BUGS certificate are awarded
  3.  Teacher support for the BUGS program
  4.  Ultimately the Florida Education Department's scholastic performance results.
BUGS is in its second year of implementation at Wilkinson Elementary and other than teacher support and attendance at award assemblies the year-to-year honor roll comparisons are not yet possible.
Program Success Examples Feedback from Wilkinson's teachers and administration has been positive, indicating that BUGS recognition has resulted in more positive learning attitudes on the part of students.  We have observed that the number of parents attending the BUGS awards ceremonies has increased.
Description

Through its Service Leadership Programs,  Kiwanis International has created a Kiwanis family of clubs to introduce students to community service, project management, team work, and leadership.   SLP Clubs provide students from grades three through college an opportunity to give back to their communities around the world.  SLP programs are a major initiative of the Foundation of the Siesta Key Kiwanis Club and our members act as advisers to Clubs at Riverview High School, Sarasota Middle School, and grades 3 to 12 at the Pine View School.

Short Term Success Over the past several years, SLP students in the "Builders Club" at Sarasota Middle School have raised money for the March of Dimes.  In 2016 the amount raised was over $2,000.  Key Club members (SLP Students in High School) have funded a school building project in Bangladesh, paid for wells in the Sudan, and worked on Habitat builds in Sarasota.   For the past three years, Key Club members at Pine View have secured and distributed over 100,000 pounds of food to low income families of Sarasota.   These successes demonstrate the team work, project management, and leadership capabilities developed by our SLP students. 
Long Term Success Long term success for students in the program are reflected in academic and post secondary school success.  Students in our Key Clubs are typically college bound.  The skills and experiences gained while in our SLP clubs are positives for college admittance and scholarships.  In the large scope of things the teamwork, management, and leadership skills  they've acquired are a foundation for career success - whatever their chosen career.
Program Success Monitoring
At the beginning of each school year, each Club sets its community service goals.  Tracking progress against those goals is the SLP Club leader's responsibility.   A member of the Siesta Key Kiwanis Club and Foundation is assigned to each SLP Club as an adviser.  The adviser follows the progress to determine if intervention is needed for the Club to reach its goals.  The Kiwanis Adviser will work with the SLP Club's faculty adviser if needed for success.
  
At another level, SLP Key Clubs from across Florida meet a Key Club District conference in Orlando once each year for education and sharing.  Part of this experience is competition for outstanding examples of performance, including officers, projects, public presentations etc.  We expect our Key Clubs to be competitive and to be recognized for their accomplishments.  They rarely fail to be recognized in some way at the Florida level.
Program Success Examples
  1.  In 2016 our Sarasota Middle School raised over $2,000 for the March of Dimes (well above the goal of $1,000.)
  2.  In the past 2 years both our Key Clubs have worked on Habitat house builds.
  3.  Pine View Key Club has secured and distributed more than 100,000 pounds of food to families in need.
  4. Within the past 5 years, the Pine View Key Club has funded a school build in Bangladesh and wells in the Sudan.
  5.  SLP students perform weekly service projects from making sandwiches for the Salvation Army to distribute, "birthing mats" for rural African villages, to providing gift packages for service men, etc.
Description

There are many AKtion Clubs worldwide but the first club was founded by the Kiwanis Clubs in Sarasota years ago at what is now Community Haven. AKtion Club Members are adult men and women who's capabilities are challenged mentally. In addition to providing its members the means to contribute to local charities, this AKtion Club supports the quality of life objectives the Haven seeks for its clients. All Kiwanis Clubs in the Sarasota metro-area contribute financially to support this AKtion Club.

    

The second AKtion Club in the Sarasota metro-region is the Suncoast AKtion Club founded in 2015 at the Suncoast Technical College by the Kiwanis Club of Siesta Key. The students in the Suncoast AKtion Club are 18-22 year-old men and women in a special program focused on job skills, independent living success, team work and socialization. Their experiences as AKtion Club members support these objectives while building self confidence and contributing to the community.

Short Term Success AKtion Club membership is modeled after that of adult Kiwanis Clubs.  In that environment, they learn through experience goal setting, planning, and team work.  Through their project work members gain self confidence, expand their personal capabilities, and experience recognition for their contributions.
Long Term Success
For Community Haven's clients who are members of the Haven's AKtion Club, there are long term quality of life benefits that come with self confidence and accomplishment.  The structure of AKtion Club activity is a recognized factor in the success that many clients have in the job market and volunteer positions.
 
Suncoast AKtion Club members are in a program whose goal is self-sufficiency and independence.  As part of their program, the AKtion Club experience is intended to improve members' ability to move forward with their lives with the confidence  and ability to manage largely on their own.
Program Success Monitoring Both AKtion Clubs are under constant staff supervision.  Both Clubs have Kiwanis advisers who attend meetings and interact with their Club's leaders.   Should issues arise needing attention, intervention is provided by staff and is available from Siesta Key and other Kiwanis Clubs.  All AKtion Clubs are reviewed and memberships renewed annually.  They are never in any way "adrift."
Program Success Examples
Over the years since its Chartering, the AKtion Club at Community Haven has a proven track record of improving members' quality of life and self-confidence.  The number of memberships in the Haven's Club is limited by staff support and available transportation.  It always has had a waiting list to join.  So the waiting list is an indicator of the value Haven's clients expect to receive as AKtion Club members.  The Club raises several hundreds of dollars for local charities and is a major sponsor of  the annual "Jingle and Jog" fundraiser at the Haven.
 
The Suncoast Club is entering its second year after chartering.  The measure of its success will be the success of its members after they leave the program when they reach 22 years of age.  Members have demonstrated the decision making, team work,  communication, and planning skills needed for independent living.  In the 2015 school year the Club raised money for the Salvation Army, and in 2016, received a prize for its holiday display at a shopping mall.

Management Comments by Organization

Leadership’s major challenge is how to use our resources to best advantage. We have two resources our member’s time and our Foundation’s money. The unmet needs of many children in the Sarasota region are well known: hunger, literacy, safety, education, shelter, clothing, parenting etc. The numbers are high - hundreds homeless, 21,000+ served by the Campaign Against Summer Hunger. For us, the challenge becomes a process of identifying specific situations where our resources will result in the greatest benefit for the most children.

    
We approach this challenge at every weekly meeting by reaching out to individuals and community organizations doing important work aligned with our mission, asking them to share with our members their work, stories, and successes. We do this with our speakers program, and by attending community meetings and forums focused on issues children and youth.
   

For example, a few years ago a member heard through friends that a woman had single-handedly launched an effort to prepare homeless kids for school at the beginning of the September school term. Getting ready for school in the fall means more than spiral notebooks, pads and pencils. It means clothes, haircuts, shoes, check-ups, IDs and encouragement. That woman was Pam Hawn.  We invited Pam to speak to our members about her work.  She described the need, her efforts, the results and her hopes to increase the number of children served during the next summer's efforts. Our members were moved and our Foundation gave Pam financial support to continue her work.  

    
Each year Pam returns to share the progress of what is now the annual “Hope Kids School Readiness Program.” And so every year our support for Pam and Hope Kids has grown. This summer (2016) our club will provide a team to prepare meals for one of the school readiness events. In May, our Foundation gave Hope Kids a $2,000 check to support this summer's school readiness. This demonstrates how leveraging our members’ time and our Foundation’s money directly benefits children in need.
    

Some additional examples where member’s time and Foundation money  combine for the greatest result are:

  • Our partnering with Wilkinson Elementary School
  • Literacy Buddy support for children in VPK classes
  • Student Leadership Programs at Pine View, Riverview and Sarasota Middle School
  • Support for Kiwanis AKtion Clubs at Community Haven and Suncoast Technical College
  • All Faiths Food Bank’s Back Pack Program
  • Food drives for All Faiths Food Bank
  • Foundation grants to the Campaign for Summer Hunger

Governance Comments by Organization

Kiwanis is a membership organization where Club Boards, such as ours, are elected annually and candidates are Club members in good standing.  Because of this, our governance challenges are related in large part to the size and talents of our Club's member pool of 40, of which 11 are currently Board members.  

 
Of our 40 current members, 30 have served on prior Boards or on the current Board.  Of these, there are a number who, while willing to chair projects and serve on committees, feel they have done their part or are currently too busy with careers to serve.
    
A secondary but no less important concern is the technical capability – hardware, software and skills – of Board candidates, as well as committee chairs and the members at large. Good governance requires good, timely communication. Lapses and gaps in technical capability, especially in organizations such as ours where individual members provide and operate the infrastructure, introduce communications and administrative disconnects.
    

Yet, these same situations represent opportunity, especially with technology. New members with careers, appear able to make room in their schedules to assume leadership roles because we have been working to make our organization’s communication better focused and efficient. At the same time, we’ve been working to ensure workloads, especially for Board members, are manageable and appropriate. Coincidentally, recently retired new members possess computer skills and personal technology more in line with the needs of our organization. Also, the technology available now allows members to participate in Board meetings while traveling, expanding the candidate pool.

Over the past year, we have updated our by-laws to better reflect our current operation and had them approved by Kiwanis International.  We have improved our record keeping with more digitizing and fewer paper files.  Storage of documents is taking place on our website to better preserve our archives and keep them in a central location accessible to all members who need them.  This assures a smooth transition to future club administrations and safer retention methods to preserve our records.

We face two intersecting challenges: 

1) To identify opportunities where our support (grants from our Foundation, and direct member involvement) will effectively address the primary needs of children, which otherwise would not be addressed. 

2) To raise the funds necessary to make sustainable grants from our Foundation, while at the same time, growing the asset base of our foundation. Our foundation’s assets are currently consigned to the Sarasota Community Foundation.

We address these issues in two ways:

First, we seek out and invite representatives from regional non-profits to speak at our Wednesday meetings. In this way our members get an expanded perspective of both the under-served needs of children and youth, and an understanding of organizations working to address those needs.  We give weight to emerging efforts aimed at addressing these needs.  These efforts are an investment opportunity where our support will result in a positive point of inflection.  This is why we supported "Hope Kids School Readiness."  We believe the Everyday Blessings initiatives in the foster care space is another such opportunity.

This year's Business Partner commitment to Wilkinson Elementary School is a chance to focus our efforts on one institution and provide support in a variety of ways including educational (BUGs and Kiwanis Kids programs), monetary (direct classroom funding) and in-kind (Christmas Angels & year-long clothing drive).
  
Second, we manage a group of fundraising events during each Fiscal Year planned to replace and exceed the grants given by our Foundation. The advantage is that the results (and risks) are spread across several events. A concurrent advantage is that our Club members have increased opportunity to be involved in fundraising as committee chairs and volunteers.
