Preparing to raise $100 million for a worldwide service project, the Kiwanis International Foundation has hired Matthew Morris, who was Indiana University Foundation’s, chief fund-raising officer.
Morris will oversee fund raising for the world service project that Indianapolis-based Kiwanis International will announce in June. He’ll also work on a comprehensive strategy for the foundation’s long-term growth, Chief Operating Officer Linda Brimmer said.
The foundation had $8.3 million in assets as of Feb. 5, but Brimmer wants to increase
that base over the next 10 years to $50 million.
“That is why Matt and I are here,” she said. “We need to grow that corpus substantially.”
Brimmer, formerly CEO of the Goodwill Industries Foundation of Central Indiana, joined Kiwanis International in September.
