Our History

Recognizing the need for embracing the quality of life in St. Bernard Parish, the Kiwanis Club of St. Bernard-Arabi established the St. Bernard Kiwanis Foundation, Inc. in January 1997.  Administered by a voluntary board of directors, the foundation is designed to create, maintain and expand charitable endeavors in our community.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the Stream of Dreams is to serve as a partnership between the Kiwanis Foundation and the local community.  The Stream of Dreams seeks to attract community support and in turn, direct those contributions to charitable, patriotic, educational, and other public-spirited organizations of exceptional merit that qualify as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.  In order to receive funding from our Foundation, nonprofit organizations should demonstrate leadership, creativity and effectiveness in improving quality of life in St. Bernard Parish area.

Our Mission

Our mission is to seek opportunities for community relationships and to help local organizations fulfill their charitable goals.  The Foundation will build upon and expand the work of community-based service organizations.

Our Structure

To insure the integrity, the Foundation funds are governed and disbursed by the voluntary Board of Directors of the St. Bernard Kiwanis Foundation, Inc.  All contributions to the foundation are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Students work with their classroom teacher and establish goals to improve behavior, peer relationships, attendance, or schoolwork. Students then work toward achieving the goal during a specific time period. The teachers and principal determine the best schedule for recognition.
