Kids Need Kiwanis.
For over 100 years, Kiwanis San Diego has consisted of a diverse spectrum of business, government, military, and community leaders who gather to promote fellowship and camaraderie while making the San Diego region, including Baja California, a better place for all.
Our members are ordinary people performing extraordinary work. We are creative with our ideas. We are generous with our time. We are passionate about making a difference. And we have fun along the way.
We partner with many local organizations and give a significant amount of time and money annually to projects supporting youth in our community.
The Kiwanis Club of San Diego works in concert with the San Diego Kiwanis Club Foundation, Inc. (the "Foundation"). The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) foundation incorporated in California that annually provides more than $250,000 to projects and organizations in the community.
We are San Diego's best kept secret.
Your Community Needs Kiwanis.
Our first major fundraising effort in 1924 provided $65,000 to construct a new facility for The Helping Hand Home for Children, which became Rady Children’s Hospital.
In 1953, we created our Foundation, which has given more than $4.6 million in grants and scholarships since 2000 and continues to annually provide approximately $250,000 for grants to youth-focused nonprofits, and scholarships for local high school students attending undergraduate programs at San Diego’s major universities.
Examples of our support include: the establishment of the City’s new Central Library by giving a $100,000 gift to fund a youth meeting room and has provided major gifts to other organizations like the: San Diego River Park, Fleet Science Center; Boys to Men and the New Children’s Museum. The Club has also been instrumental in the formation and continued funding of Washington-Lincoln Laurels for Leaders, an organization that annually recognizes and honors each of the Associated Student Body presidents from every public, private and parochial high school in the County of San Diego.
