Financial Commitments

Kiwanians are responsible for annual dues to our club and to Kiwanis International which maintain the operation of the organzation ($125) and a one time criminal background check ($35) to protect the children and youth we help. Kiwanians are also responsible for the costs of their lunch and dinner at meetings, typically $15.

Kiwanians are also invited to participate in fundraising initiatives, which are FUN! These include the annual auction, baseball games, bowling, an evening of painting at Muse, and more. There are many opportunites, but they are not required. We generally ask that each Kiwanian participates in at least two events whether they are community service or fundraising, it's up to you.
