Arlington Kiwanis Foundation

About Us


Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Founded in 1915, Kiwanis has more than 550,000 members, and nearly 15,000 clubs, in 80 nations. Kiwanis clubs help communities in countless ways. Each community’s needs are different—so each Kiwanis club is different.

The Kiwanis Club of Arlington is the city’s oldest and largest club. It began in 1952 and has been a key player in spreading goodness among the community. At its core, Kiwanis is a service organization, pursuing its mission through contributions of money raised and time devoted by volunteers. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.  Our mission is driven by the belief  that the most effective way to enhance a community is to encourage its children.  We believe that when a child is given a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things will unfold.
