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 600,000 adult and youth members in
over 80 countries who participate in regular club meetings, service projects, and fundraising.
99 Years of Service - The Kiwanis Club of
Raleigh was chartered in 1920. With about 230 members, we are one of the largest and
oldest Kiwanis clubs in the world. For nearly a century, we have been serving children of the
local community and the world through our club projects
and foundation grants.
Our 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,
over $50,000 for a Kiwanis cabin at Victory Junction, raising over $110,000 to
help eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus worldwide, and raising about
$420,000 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.
