Marjory Stoneman Douglas Fund
The Florida District has truly been rocked by the mass shooting that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. As a Key Club District, as a family, and as a community, this tragedy hit close to home. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is home to a Key Club and thus we as Key Clubbers share a special bond. Here at Boone, we had a teacher that went to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and lost part of her home community.
The Florida District has been searching for ways to commemorate the lives of the seventeen victims that were lost. In dedication to those who were lost at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, the Parkland community, and the families affected, The Florida District has decided on a creation of a scholarship in honor of the victims to be titled “The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Memorial Fund.” To ensure that this fund lives on, the Florida Kiwanis Foundation in conjunction with the Florida District of Key Club will match up to $20,000 dollars. If at all possible, The Key Club District would like to personally request that you make a donation to this cause by using the link following this short address. Your donation will allow the District to always commemorate those who were lost, by ensuring the sustainability of this fund. If you are unable to donate, please try to pass on this message.
Florida Key Club Endowment Fund
The Florida Key Club Endowment Fund was established to provide college scholarships and funds to reduce the cost of the annual District Education and Leadership Conference (DCON). The Endowment Fund focuses on funding opportunities for Key Club servant leaders and will fund at least ten scholarships, nine of which will be $2,000 each. As the Endowment grows in future years, the number of funded scholarships will increase. In fact, over the next five years, the Endowment aims to grow to more than $1 million and to eventually provide dozens of scholarships. However, this goal will only be possible with your help.
Contributions made to the Endowment are entirely tax-deductible under U.S. Internal Revenue regulations. We encourage Key Club members, former members, family, friends, businesses, and organizations to consider making a tax-deductible donation. You may even make automatic recurring donations and donations in someone’s name. Simply click on the Give Now button above to get started.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF
The Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Committee encourages all clubs to fundraise for The Eliminate Project through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. The Eliminate Projects' main focus is to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus, a disease that is contracted during childbirth due to an unvaccinated mother being exposed to unsterile instruments and contact with the ground or other unsanitary objects during birth. Infants infected with tetanus experience intense pain due to convulsions that are triggered by a heightened sensitivity to light, sound, and touch that usually cause the baby to die after about a week. All funds collected through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF will go to alleviate the over 100 million women who at risk for the infection.
As Key Clubbers, we have a duty to stand up for those in need. We all want to make a change in the world, leave an impact, and by simply being members we’re taking a step in the right direction. But this is isn’t enough, we need to make a lasting impression that will go on after we have all left that will benefit not only all those in our home, school, and communities, but those far away. We might not be able to see the change personally, but we can feel the change in our hearts. We can feel the gratitude of a mother being able to hold her baby lovingly, a baby enjoying its brand new world, and feel the love and hope between them of enjoying a chance at life. So this year we highly encourage all clubs to come together and assist the Eliminate Project through TOT for UNICEF.
