Facts About Kiwanis

  • Kiwanis was organized in Detroit, Michigan, USA, on January 21, 1915.

  • Members of Kiwanis and its Service Leadership Programs volunteer more than 21 million hours and invest more than $113 million in their communities around the world.

  • Kiwanis is taking itself from a good organization to a truly great organization that defines excellence for service and leadership and builds leaders through service opportunities.

  • Kiwanis International is the only service organization that builds leaders at every level - from the youngest Kiwanis Kids all the way through several youth programs and adult programs (Kiwanis Family of Programs).

  • Kiwanis' impact on the world will be measured by the 10 million young leaders it nurtures, rather than by the number of members it attracts.
