Our Mission

Our mission is to raise, manage, and distribute funds to support programs of Ohio District Kiwanis family organizations for the improvement of the lives of children and families.

March is Women’s History Month. It is a good time to recognize women who are leaders in your Kiwanis Club. Honor them with an ODKF leadership award or a Past International Presidents’ award.

    Extending Our Ohio Kiwanis Impact

    The Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation is committed to assisting Ohio Kiwanis Clubs in improving the lives of children and families in Ohio. The work of our foundation helps our Kiwanis family of programs change children’s lives, impact communities, and nurture the next generation—often in ways that would otherwise remain beyond the resources of our local Kiwanis clubs.
    Join us today to help us improve the lives of children and families in Ohio.
