What are the benefits of being a Kiwanis member? 

Through Kiwanis membership, you will better the lives of children locally and globally, have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, make business contacts, develop friendships, and have a lot of fun! Most importantly, you will change the lives of children in our community and around the world for the better. 

Members also receive Kiwanis magazine ten times a year, enjoy access to an online community, as well as discounts on products and services. 

Are there membership requirements? 
Our goals can only be achieved and our community improved through the direct efforts of our membership in a variety of ways. Each year, we ask that members participate in two hands-on service projects, support one fundraising activity, and promote the club’s mission to identify one potential new member, financial supporter or community.

You can support our efforts in the ways that best fit you through one or more of the following:

  • Participating in hands-on service projects that address the basis needs of our communities and build safe play environments
  • Collecting resources to benefit those in need (eye glasses, pill bottles, books)
  • Supporting fundraising activities
  • Contributing directly to Cincinnati Kiwanis Foundation, a 501c3
  • Advising and empowering youth in our community through service leadership programs
  • Chaperoning Key Leader weekends
  • Promoting the club’s mission to attract new members, financial support and partnerships with other community organizations
  • Serving in club leadership roles

What is the membership fee?
