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.
