What is Kiwanis?

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one community and one child at a time. Membership in a Kiwanis club can provide you with an avenue to become involved in your community and to participate with business and community leaders. Kiwanis lends the energy of a local volunteer organization to accomplish worthwhile service endeavors of your choosing.


Kiwanis Makes A Difference
A Kiwanian is a business person, a neighbor, family member, or a friend in your community who makes a difference in the lives of others. A Kiwanian gives of him/herself to those who need assistance most. A Kiwanian works for a way of life in which he/she believes.


How Does Kiwanis Work?

Kiwanis clubs accomplish their goals through sponsorship of a wide range of projects. Each club selects its projects depending upon the particular needs of its community. Projects vary from one club to another.


Who Is Kiwanis For?

Kiwanis is for anyone who cares about children and who wants to assist in improving the lives of others in his/her community. The membership of a Kiwanis club is representative of a broad spectrum of the community it serves and is often made up of business people, stay-at-home parents, community leaders, and retirees alike. Kiwanis membership has something to offer everyone.  Likewise, anyone interested in community service has something to offer Kiwanis.


What Is My Commitment?

You can choose a level of commitment that is comfortable for you and select the projects that are of interest to you personally. Contribute your time, knowledge, expertise, and love as your schedule allows. Bring your personal interests or community organization under the Kiwanis umbrella of sponsored projects. Be sure to join Kiwanis social events, where we recognize and celebrate our efforts.
