Kiwanis Dues 2023-2024
Members of local Kiwanis clubs pay annual membership dues to their club. Dues paid by the members generally support their Kiwanis club, the Kiwanis district and Kiwanis International.
The total amount a member pays in dues entirely depends on their club and district. Each district sets district dues according to its budgetary needs, as does each club. Some clubs, for example, may set higher dues to account for meals provided during meetings or to cover meeting rental space, while others may set lower dues and leave meals up to the individual member.
Kiwanis International member dues are set at US$52 per year for Tier A*; US$34 for Tier B* and US$23 for Tier C* clubs. These amounts have not changed since 2015 and, per Kiwanis International Bylaws, can only be changed by a vote of the delegates at a Kiwanis International convention. (Each district finalizes its own dues and fees based on its budgetary needs for the upcoming administrative year by mid-September for implementation in October. Additionally, for members in clubs in the U.S. and Canada, there is a cost of US$8 for Kiwanis publications, US$18 for liability insurance and US$4 for Directors & Officers Insurance.
Please note, the actual dues are the same as last year. Tier changes and currency exchange may mean your club is paying a different amount per member than last year.
For Kiwanis International dues, a member country falls into one of three Tiers. The Gross National Income (GNI) determines the dues owing Tier.
Jamaica, Saint Lucia and Grenada all had increases in their GNI according to the World Bank information as of July 31, 2023. This increase moved them to a higher Tier.
