Welcome to the La Jolla Kiwanis Club!!

The Kiwanis Club of La Jolla is a part of Kiwanis International, 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. The Kiwanis Club of La Jolla raises approximately $200,000 through the annual La Jolla Half Marathon and 5K race. This money is distributed through Grants to dozens of charitable organizations throughout San Diego and beyond. In addition, The La Jolla Club host additional community events including the annual the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast, the La Jolla Kiwanis Cove Swim, the La Jolla Kiwanis Concerts by the Sea and The Moon Mullens Junior Olympics.

“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 $200,000, 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.
