95 Years of Service - The Kiwanis Club of
Raleigh, North Carolina, was chartered in 1920. With approximately 230 members, we are one of the largest and
oldest Kiwanis clubs in the world. For almost a century, our club has been serving the children of the
local community and the world through many projects, including the establishment
of the Kiwanis Park, building a Habitat for Humanity house, raising over
$100,000 to help eliminate iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) worldwide, raising
over $50,000 for a Kiwanis cabin at the Victory Junction camp, and raising over
$110,000 for The Eliminate Project to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus
(MNT) worldwide. Additionally, our foundation gives numerous grants
annually to local organizations to benefit children. In 2012, our club was inducted into the Raleigh Hall of Fame.
