 - 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, 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 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.
