Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland
101 Years of Happily Serving Children

COME AND JOIN US!!

Yes, it's nearing the time for our annual Pancake Breakfast... Pancaking to End Homelessness!  We offer a delicious breakfast, and great entertainment provided by a number of local musicians and artists.  Our event is held in conjunction with the 7 Hills of Kirkland Bicycle Ride, and all the food has been provided by Casino Caribbean in Kirkland, all proceeds go to ATTAIN HOUSING (formerly KITH).  It's a deliciously fun event, and goes to a great cause.

The Kiwanis Club of Kirkland keeps growing, and every year we are able to provide more and more support for our children and young people.  It's all of you who make this possible... whether its buying a Christmas Tree, coming to our entertaining Pancake Breakfast, or simply making a tax deductible donation or grant to our Kirkland Kiwanis Foundation, it all serves to provide the resources we need to continue doing good things for Greater Kirkland kids.

We are an all-volunteer organization, so 100% of net proceeds from fundraising efforts and donations go directly to programs designed to assist children in our community.  They include:  Attain Housing, Key Club leadership conventions, Special Olympics, What’s Next Bowlers, Scouting, Kiwanis Camp Casey, Eastside Baby Corner, Kirkland Easter Egg Hunt, Kirkland Teen Union Building (KTUB), Boys and Girls Club, the Burned Children's Recovery Foundations, LWSD robotics clubs, and much much more. 

We also award academic as well as vocational scholarships to selected graduating high school seniors within the Lake Washington School District geographic boundaries.  

Chartered in 1947, we are one of the oldest service clubs on the Eastside, and with nearly 100  members, one of the largest. 

So what do we do... and what are we all about?  We are a diverse group of people who are literally dedicated to Serving the Children of the World.  We are part of Kiwanis International, but the vast majority of what we do is focused on local needs.  We are funloving... and don't take ourselves too seriously... but we definitely take our mission very seriously.

  If you're sincerely interesting in helping children and being a contributing member to your community, check out our website further, and if you'd like more information, contact our club secretary Matt Gregory at (425) 828-0231.  Better yet, come and join us for lunch! (see details below).

Another Great Community Event!!

The American Cancer Society's "Relay For Life" event in Kirkland at Juanita High School on Saturday May 21st. The Juanita Key Club has registered a team and will be participating in the event. The event begins at noon on Saturday and is filled with live music, a DJ, western inspired games (i.e lasso and dunk tanks) and a BBQ starting a 5:00PM. This is a great community event that is family friendly and we encourage all community members to come out for an hour or two during our 24-hour event! Volunteers in the community will be selling food items, crafts, and enticing you with games in the hopes of receiving donations for their fundraising teams for the American Cancer Society. We also have a GREAT silent auction!
