Kiwanis International is a global organization of members dedicated to serving the children of the world. Kiwanis and its family of clubs (nearly 600,000 members strong) annually raise more than $100 million dollars and dedicate more than 18 million volunteer hours to strengthen communities and serve children. Members of every age attend regular meetings, experience fellowship, raise funds for various causes and participate in service projects that help their communities.
“Serving the Children of the World” is our mission, and we would love to have you attend one of our meetings as a guest to learn more!
Donate to the La Jolla Kiwanis Foundation!
Each year, we raise about $250,000, mainly from our La Jolla Half Marathon race, but we are always happy to receive general donations. Let us help you to spread your charitable contribution around the community, as we partner with over fifty 501(c)(3) non-profit charities to put the money into the hands that need it.
We sponsor three main events annually, the La Jolla Half Marathon, the Junior Olympics and the Pancake Breakfast, however we volunteer at a range of other events throughout the year too! Click below to check out the full list of how and where we serve the community!
