Who We Are

Kiwa­nis is a glob­al orga­ni­za­tion of mem­ber-vol­un­teers who are ded­i­cat­ed to improv­ing the world, one child and one com­mu­ni­ty at a time.

Kiwa­nis mem­bers ded­i­cate more than 18 mil­lion vol­un­teer hours and invest more that $107 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.

Work­ing togeth­er, Kiwa­nis mem­bers achieve what one per­son can­not accom­plish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, expe­ri­ence, dream and suc­ceed, great things happen!


Global Results

Kiwa­nis is once again join­ing forces with UNICEF to con­front anoth­er threat to the world’s chil­dren. Hav­ing suc­cess­ful­ly worked to erad­i­cate iodine defi­cien­cy (in our world­wide IDD project), Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al announced the ELIMINATE Project: Kiwa­ni­ans work­ing to elim­i­nate mater­nal and neona­tal tetanus. Our goal is to raise $110 mil­lion and save count­less moth­ers and new-born babies from the disease.
