 - 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 700,000 adult and youth members in over 80 nations who participate in regular club meetings, service projects, and fundraising.

98 Years of Service - The Kiwanis Club of Raleigh was chartered in 1920. With over 230 members, we are one of the largest and oldest Kiwanis clubs in the world. For nearly a century, our club has been serving children of the local community and the world through many projects, including establishing 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 Victory Junction, and raising over $110,000 for The Eliminate Project to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) worldwide.

In 2012, our club was inducted into the Raleigh Hall of Fame, and we received a 2018 Fred Fletcher Outstanding Volunteer Award from the City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department. We raised over $385,000 for our 2020 Centennial Parks Project, and our foundation gives annual grants to many local organizations to benefit children.
