The Charlotte Kiwanis Club was chartered in 1918.  It is one of 7,700 Kiwanis International clubs in 80 countries.

The Kiwanis motto is "Serving the Children of the World". 

The Charlotte club offers fellowship and networking with people seeking community-building activities and, in support of our motto, actively pursues opportunities to serve, motivate, and contribute to the children in our community. Through our fundraising events, student recognition programs, literacy related projects, family supporting activities, the Club is strengthening the Charlotte community by impacting the lives of our city's children and their families.
