Message from the District Governor 


Welcome to the 2015-16 Kiwanis year Ohio District of Kiwanis!

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Kiwanis Clubs are found in 80 countries. In Ohio, there are over 230 Kiwanis Clubs with nearly 7,700 members. Our Kiwanis Clubs perform a variety of service projects that benefit people of all ages, with a focus on serving the children of the world.

We are in for an exciting year as we celebrate 100 years of Kiwanis being a truly international organization. We have 8 Clubs in Ohio that will proudly celebrate 100th Anniversaries this year and many more with significant years of service to local communities across Ohio.

This year we will focus on doing hands on, family friendly service projects in our local communities. This can be from Amtrykes to Eliminate Project Zeller Donations, and everything in between - Service from A to Z as we Serve the Children of the World! This will enable us to Inspire our membership with Impactful projects and enhance our overall Image in our local communities, all part of the Kiwanis iPlan to advance our organization.

What if you could save a baby's life?

With The Eliminate Project, you can. Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) kills one baby every nine minutes. But three doses of a 60-cent vaccine can protect mothers and babies. Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined forces to bring this vaccine to 38 countries, eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. What can you do right now? Learn about MNT and advocate for the cause. Participate in our fundraisers. Over the next few years, the work we do will change the world. Find out more at
