Kiwanis is a worldwide service organization for men and women. We meet weekly, and we work with the community on a variety of fundraising and community involvement projects to improve the lives of children and their families.
Our group is an active and committed partner to many non-profit organizations, having given over $90,000 last year in support of projects which include scholarships for Menlo-Atherton High School graduates, St Anthony’s Dining Hall, Tour de Cure of Diabetes, Special Games for physically challenged youth, Rebuilding Together, Key Club of Menlo-Atherton High School and the City of Menlo Park.
As a group, we can achieve what individuals cannot do alone, and our many projects focusing on youth and families benefit a wide variety of local organizations and communities. We meet weekly at Allied Arts Guild, and we welcome visitors. Guest speakers provide us with information and education on a variety of topics–from updates on social media to crafting family histories.
While most of our members attend our meetings weekly, another membership option is designed for those who can only attend one meeting a month. Plan to attend one of our meetings to learn more about Kiwanis Memberships.
