Welcome! - Kiwanis is a global organization of
volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a
time. The Kiwanis family of clubs has over 550,000 adult and youth members in
80 nations and geographic areas who participate in regular club meetings and service
and fundraising projects.
100 Years of Service - The Kiwanis Club of
Raleigh was chartered in 1920. With about 215 members, we are one of the largest and
oldest Kiwanis clubs in the world. For a century, we have been serving children of the
local community and the world through our club projects
and foundation grants.
Our major projects have included establishing the local Kiwanis Park, building a
Habitat for Humanity house, raising over $100,000 to help eliminate iodine deficiency disorders worldwide,
raising over $50,000 for a Kiwanis cabin at Victory Junction, raising over $110,000 to
help eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus worldwide, and raising
$418,800 for our 2020 Centennial Parks Project.
In 2012, our club was inducted into the Raleigh Hall of
Fame. In 2018, we received a Fred Fletcher Outstanding Volunteer Award from
the City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department.
