Welcome! - 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 550,000 adult and youth members in 80 nations and geographic areas who participate in regular club meetings and service and fundraising projects.

101 Years of Service - The Kiwanis Club of Raleigh was chartered in 1920. With over 200 members, we are one of the largest and oldest Kiwanis clubs in the world. For over a century, we have been serving children of the local community and the world through our club projects and foundation grants.

Our major 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 $418,800 for our 2020 Centennial Parks Project.

Our club was inducted into the Raleigh Hall of Fame in 2012, received a Fred Fletcher Outstanding Volunteer Award from the City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department in 2018, and was inducted into the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wake County Hall of Fame in 2020.
