About our Kiwanis club
Founded in 1922, the Kiwanis Club of Napa is the oldest club in Division 8 of the Cal-Nev-Ha District of Kiwanis International. It is the largest club in its division with over 100+ members and growing. Our Kiwanis Club’s priority is to assist the youth and seniors of the community in two primary ways: by community giving and by performing direct community service.
Through annual fundraisers we are able to support the community by providing scholarships to the youth of Napa and local providers that support our seniors.
The Kiwanis Club of Napa provides direct community service. We have built 58 playgrounds and counting in their long-term program to fund and build replacement playgrounds for the local schools. We have built benches along the river trail. We volunteer in support of the annual Salvation Army holiday bell-ringing fundraiser. Our focus is on helping people in our community that need a hand and not a handout.
The Kiwanis Mission & Vision
Kiwanis empowers communities to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children. Kiwanis strives to be a positive influence in communities worldwide — so that one day, all children will wake up in communities that believe in them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive. Our Kiwanis club fulfills the Kiwanis mission by serving our community through Kiwanis Community Service Projects.
Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it’s located. Members stage approximately 150,000 service projects and raise nearly US$100 million every year for communities, families and projects. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.
Our Kiwanis club focuses on changing the world by serving children, one child in our community at a time. To reach more people and have a greater service impact on their communities, many clubs sponsor a Kiwanis family club — K-Kids for primary school children; Builders Clubs for adolescents; Key Clubs for teens; Circle K clubs for university students and Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities.
The kids in your community and the world are counting on you!
