What is a District Fundraising Initiative (DFI)?

They are the 3 causes that the Cal-Nev-Ha District of Circle K support through fundraising! These three causes are To Write Love On Her Arms, Kiwanis Family House, and Pediatric Trauma Program. There is also an International Fundraising Initiative, which is Brick x Brick, a partnership with UNICEF.

To Write Love On Her Arms

To Write Love On Her Arms is our rotating DFI for the 2023-24 term. This non-profit is focused on assisting those individuals struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide receive the resources and hope that will allow them to get treatment and recover. 

Kiwanis Family House

The Kiwanis Family House strives to provide housing and support to families of seriously ill or injured children and adults being treated at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA. The funds raised will go towards providing additional resources and improve the stay for these families so that they can be there to support.

Pediatric Trauma Program

The Pediatric Trauma Program aims to develop local projects which will reduce the number of children who are killed or injured by trauma. These projects include promoting community outreach, providing education materials, and assisting partner hospitals. The funds raised will go towards the end goal of preventing unintentional injury and death as well as providing safety items for children.

Brick x Brick

The Brick x Brick project is a partnership that Circle K International has with UNICEF USA, in which bricks made out of recycled plastic are used to build classrooms within the African nation of Côte d’Ivoire. This project contributes to multiple causes, such as creating a cleaner planet, alleviating poverty for families and empowering women, and building safe spaces for children to learn and play.
