"Serving the Children of the World"
Kiwanis Club of Gainesville, Florida, Inc.
Serving the University City Since 1923
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. - Kiwanis defining statement, adopted October 2004.
Kiwanis International – founded 1915, Headquarters now in Indianapolis, Indiana
The Kiwanis Club of Gainesville meets from noon – 1:00 PM on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month for lunch at the Wyndham Garden Gainesville, 2900 SW 13th Street, Gainesville, Florida. You are always welcome.
We also meet – more informally and socially – from 7:00 – 8:30 AM on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month for breakfast at the 43rd Street Deli on Williston Road, 3483 SW Williston Rd. at I-75. You are always welcome.
We sponsor Circle K International at the University of Florida as well as several Key Clubs, Builders Clubs, and Kiwanis Kids Clubs in the Gainesville area. Additionally, we support a number of other non-profit organizations and have several club projects ongoing (reading to kids with Kids Count, obtaining books & school supplies, mentoring to students, donating to various causes, etc.).
The Bottom Line:
Kids Need a Foundation,
Kids Need Fans,
Kids Need Kiwanis.
In an age of municipal budget cuts, decreased school funding and fewer civic organizations, Kiwanis is the safety net that creates opportunities for children to be curious, safe, and healthy regardless of the community in which they live.
