Serving the Children of the World 


The mission of the Kiwanis Club of Richmond is to improve the quality of life for children in the metropolitan area of Richmond by contributing the time and talents of the membership and the financial resources of the Club in an atmosphere of caring, service, fellowship, and learning.

The Club boasts more than 200 members who meet at noon on Mondays at the Virginia Historical Society for fellowship, food and learning from a fantastic array of diverse speakers from our community and beyond. We support several long-term service projects with Richmond Public Schools and several established Richmond-area nonprofit organizations, and we also volunteer at community events like the Richmond Marathon and Monument Avenue 10K.

We welcome visitors or prospective members to attend an upcoming meeting; just email the Kiwanis office at, or call 804-447-3769 so that we can arrange for someone from the Club to greet you at the meeting and show you our Kiwanis hospitality! You can also learn more about the Club by perusing our website (although, like most websites, it is a work in progress).

Below is a list of our upcoming speakers and events:

This is an annual Kiwanis tradition. Susan Greenbaum entertains while Kiwanians, Key Clubbers, and family members visit with the children who are residents at Children's Hospital and distribute gifts. Most of these resident youngsters are in need of round the clock skilled nursing, and it can be a very emotional, moving, and humbling experience for everyone involved when we share the holidays with these young people and their families.

Tentative dates.  December 12 and/or 19.

We told the Salvation Army that we would have about 50 Kiwanians and Key Clubbers there to work. Please put this interclub on your calendar and pass it on to all your members. This is a great event and a chance for all clubs to get together.
