WHAT WE DO

We volunteer. More than 1000 hours annually to community service.

We raise funds, 100% of which are directly invested in the community. Proceeds from our annual blueberry sale have provided nearly $100,000 to benefit Arlington kids.

We award scholarships. More than $15,000 to Arlington high school graduates each year.

We distribute grants. More than $59,000 annually to community organizations that support area children.

We support maternal and neonatal health. Our Club donated $55,000 to The ELIMINATE project, a global initiative of UNESCO and Kiwanis International.

We sponsor leadership opportunities for youth with Key Clubs at Washington-Liberty and Yorktown High Schools.

Global Organization

The Kiwanis Club of Arlington has served the Arlington Community for more than 90 years! We are part of a worldwide organization founded in 1915 with headquarters in Indianapolis whose mission is “to serve the children of the world, one child and one community at a time”. 

Arlington Kiwanis Foundation

The Kiwanis Club of Arlington established a 501(c) (3) tax exempt organization as a means of collecting, maintaining, and disbursing funds for charitable purposes. The Arlington Kiwanis Foundation is managed by a board of directors elected from and by the members of the Kiwanis Club, and operates independently from the board of the Club itself.

Among our service projects, we assist AFAC in bagging food supplies every second Wednesday, collect children’s books to be given gratis each child visiting the Arlington Pediatric Clinic, read to elementary students at Aspire! After-School Learning and to Randolph Elementary School children on Dr. Seuss’ birthday, assist Salvation Army ring bells for their red kettle Christmas campaign and participate in iCanShine bike program in the summer helping kids with disabilities to learn how to ride a bike. 

We support and chaperone the Key Club officers attending the state or district convention where they network with peers who will become future civic leaders.

In the last five years, we have become known for our annual blueberry sales, our biggest fundraiser. Some other  examples are Arlington Thrive, PRS Crisis Link, Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN), Aspire! After School Learning, Arlington YMCA, Arlington 4-H, Girls on the Run, Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), National Capital Treatment & Recovery, and many others.

We support athletic clubs with soccer balls and fund high school senior graduation night, give scholarships to worthy rising college freshman and fund grants to high school mothers trying to finish their education while parenting, sometimes solo, in the Terrific Parent program.
