KIDS AT HEART
Kiwanis International is a global community of clubs, members, and partners dedicated to improving the lives of children one community at a time. Today, we stand with more than 550,000 members from K-Kids to Key Club to Kiwanis and many ages in 80 countries and geographic areas. Each community has different needs. Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children, such as fighting hunger, improving literacy, and offering guidance.
Kiwanis clubs host nearly 150,000 service projects each year.
Kiwanis helps kids around the world. Local clubs look out for our communities, and the international organization takes on large-scale challenges, such as fighting disease and poverty.
We are creative with our ideas. Whether rolling up our sleeves or opening our wallets, Kiwanians make transformative changes in communities worldwide. On average, members of the Kiwanis family host approximately 150,000 service projects and complete more than 19 million service hours a year. Every year, our clubs raise more than US$100 million to support community causes — in addition to supporting the Kiwanis Children’s Fund.
We are passionate about making a difference. Helping kids grow and succeed is at the heart of everything we do. But how we do, it is just as important. We believe our neighborhoods and our world are best served when people of all ages and backgrounds work together to share their time and talents.
Kiwanians have a smile so big, you could say it stretches more than a hundred years. What started as a way to bring people together for the greater good has grown into a global network of do-gooders — connected by a love of people and possibilities.
Kiwanis International is organized into clubs, divisions, districts, and international. This multi-leveled leadership hierarchy means members are supported by a more extensive network of leaders prepared to help clubs succeed while improving communities.
