Community Service

Kiwanis is a volunteer-led non-profit organization.  Kiwanis members are active or retired business professional men and women. Membership is 83 percent male, 17 percent female. The average Kiwanis member is 57 years old, a college graduate, married, and a homeowner. The average Kiwanian has been a member for 9.6 years.

Kiwanis Worldwide Service Project

In 1994, Kiwanis adopted its first Worldwide Service Project, a $75 million campaign in partnership with the United Nation’s Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to eliminate iodine deficiency disorders (IDD). Iodine deficiency is rare in areas where iodized salt is used, but in other parts of the world, IDD is the leading cause of preventable mental and physical retardation. The fund-raising goal was exceeded in September 2001. Kiwanis-raised funds are now at work in more than 90 nations, and these IDD programs are saving millions of children per year from mental retardation.
