The mission of the Alabama Kiwanis Foundation, as stated in its By-laws, is to secure funds, bequests, and other suitable and appropriate means and to expend these funds in support of the objectives of the Kiwanis clubs and their sponsored youth organizations in the Alabama District of Kiwanis International. The Alabama Kiwanis Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization.
The prestigious Barnett Fellow award is given as a result of a $500 contribution by, on behalf of, or in honor of an individual. The recipient is given special recognition at the next District meeting, and is presented with an Alabama Kiwanis Foundation patch to be worn on the left breast pocket of a blazer jacket, a distinctive lapel pin, and a very impressive Barnett Fellow wall plaque.
