About Us

Addressing the needs of children in our community and around the world.

2 Groups, 1 Mission

Kirkland Kiwanis Club

Our club focuses on changing the world by serving children, one child in our community at a time. We sponsor:

Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school students (ages 12 to 14), and is student led. Community-based Builders Clubs also may be established at community facilities such as churches and libraries. For more information about Builders Club, contact us at [email protected] or 800-KIWANIS.

Key Club International, the largest high school service organization in the world, empowers its members to lead and serve by cultivating leadership skills, developing friendships, and performing community service. Key Club members have a passion for helping others and gain leadership skills they will carry with them for a lifetime.

Circle K Clubs International (CKI) is the premier collegiate and university community service, leadership development, and friendship organization in the world. Circle K clubs are organized and sponsored by a Kiwanis club on a college or university campus. CKI is a self-governing organization and elects its own officers, conducts its own meetings, and determines its own service activities. CKI blends community service and leadership training with the opportunity to meet other college students around the world. For more information, contact Circle K International at [email protected] or 800-KIWANIS.

Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities. Aktion club is the only community-service club for adults living with disabilities. Aktion Club allows members to develop initiative and leadership skills in serving their communities while enabling their integration into society. Aktion Club originated in Florida in 1987 and was adopted as an official sponsored program of Kiwanis International in 2000.

Kirkland Kiwanis Foundation

Our site for tax free donations. Donations to this site contribute to:

The Keller Fund that supports orthodontic care for one to two youth annually. The requirement is that the family is not Medicaid eligible and has no dental insurance. 

The Dick Shinstrom Memorial Special Needs Student Fund  The purpose of this Fund is to provide funds to a special needs student at the middle and high school levels. It would enable the student to pursue an activity of their choosing. This is not merit-based and will award up to $1,000.

The 7 Hills of Kirkland Kirkland Kiwanis is taking over this popular annual bike ride for charity. Join us this year as we peddle uphill towards our goal of raising donations for Attain Housing.
