Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland
102 Years of Happily Serving Children                  

  Image result for new years clip art  

As we bid adieu to 2016, and welcome in 2017, we would like to thank the wonderful citizens of Kirkland for helping us make 2016 such a successful year. 

The club attracted a number of energetic and talented new members, conducted several successful fundraising events, and was able to increase the number of ways in which we were able to help the children and young people in Greater Kirkland.   Click on the news articles on the right side of this homepage to gain a sense as to how your tree purchases, donations, and grants are put to good use.  

Both our club and the Kirkland Kiwanis Foundation are 100% all-volunteer non-profit organizations, so virtually every dollar we raise goes directly to helping local children.  Recipients include:  Attain Housing (formerly K.I.T.H.), high school Kiwanis Key Club leadership conventions, Special Olympics, What’s Next Bowlers Aktion Club (a service club for impaired young adults), Scouting, Kiwanis Camp Casey (an annual week-long camp for severely physically disabled children, Eastside Baby Corner, Kirkland Easter Egg Hunt, Kirkland Teen Union Building (KTUB), Boys and Girls Club, the Burned Children's Recovery Foundations, the New Bethlehem Project (a day shelter for homeless families), The KTUB/YMCA Summer Youth Institute,  The New Bethlehem Project for homeless families, PantryPacks, and much more. 

We also annually award academic scholarships to selected graduating high school seniors within the Lake Washington School District geographic boundaries, and, through our Bill Petter Memorial Fund we provide vocational scholarships.

In addition, through our Jack Keller Memorial Fund we provide orthodontic care for selected lower income children who are caught in the middle... they neither qualify for state assistance, nor can their parents afford the cost of necessary treatment.

Kiwanis International was chartered more than 100 years ago, and our club was formed nearly 70 years ago.  This makes us one of the oldest service clubs on the Eastside, and with approximately 100 members, we are one of the largest.  We are part of Kiwanis International, whose  mission is Serving the Children of the World, but the overwhelming majority of what we do is focused on local needs. 

We are a fun-loving group of very diverse people.  While we have loads of fun, ...and never take ourselves too seriously.... when it comes to our mission, you can be certain that we take it very seriously.

If you're genuinely interested in helping our community's children in a variety of ways, check out our website further, and if you'd like more information, contact our club secretary Tom Pendergrass at (206) 910 1949.  Better yet, come and join us for a delicious lunch at The Market Street Restaurant (see details below).


Sincerely,

Mark Tillman, President 
Kiwanis Club of Kirkland
