96 Years of Service
 - The Kiwanis Club of Raleigh, North Carolina, was chartered in 1920. With approximately 240 members, we are one of the largest and oldest Kiwanis clubs in the world. For almost 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 ver $100,000 to help eliminate iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) worldwide, raising over $50,000 for a Kiwanis cabin at Victory Junction, raising over $110,000 for The Eliminate Project to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) worldwide, and raising over $350,000 for our 2020 Centennial Parks Project. Additionally, our foundation gives numerous grants annually to local organizations to benefit children. In 2012, our club was inducted into the Raleigh Hall of Fame.
