Kiwanis, founded in 1915, is a global organization of member-volunteers who are dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Kiwanis members dedicate more than 18 million volunteer hours and invest more than $100 million annually in projects that strengthen communities and serve children. We help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged and care for the sick. We develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research and much more. We believe that helping a child helps the world.
