Kiwanis Corvallis Foundation

The Corvallis Kiwanis Foundation (TCKF) is a 501(c)(3) corporation that was incorporated in July 1973 by the two Corvallis-area Kiwanis clubs: the Kiwanis Club of Corvallis and the Kiwanis Club of Corvallis Sunrisers.  Donations made to the Foundation do qualify as charitable contributions according to both State and Federal requirements.
