Empowering change that makes a difference

Since 1971, Florida Kiwanis Foundation has been supporting Kiwanis Clubs, Divisions, and students make a real impact in the state of Florida.

“I received a scholarship to community college when I was in high school that enabled me to go to college. I did not apply for the scholarship because I never thought I could go to college but the assistant principal gave my name to the Kiwanis Club.

I never would have attended college without this scholarship and I went on to get additional degrees but Kiwanis was the one that made the difference.”

Scholarship Recipient

“I enjoyed the challenge of making something out of seemingly incompatible objects. When the path or idea isn’t obvious, it’s amazing to see what you can come up with. It’s a more genuine form of creativity and problem solving. I feel it reflects some of my own journey in life, at moments when the doors were open and I had to decide what to do next”

Florida Kiwanis Club Member reflects on Play Workshop

“The activity helped demonstrate that we are the architects of our own futures and dreams which is an important positive message that we often forget in our day-to-day lives. The significant freedom and flexibility was amazing to experience”

Florida Kiwanis Club Member reflects on Play Workshop

“I got to contribute back to my community and help kids who were in a situation similar to me.”
