Welcome to Kiwanis

Welcome to your local Kiwanis service club, serving River Forest and Oak Park, where we are dedicated to supporting a culture of service in our community and developing youth as community leaders. READ MORE>>  

We meet twice monthly, and engage in service projects and social activities throughout the year. See our EVENTS CALENDAR>>

We invite you to join your friends and neighbors in Kiwanis for a moment of music, appetizers, and fun on Saturday, August 25, anytime between 5-7 pm in downtown Oak Park at the Cappelli Institute of Music, 1053 Lake Street, 2nd Floor. We welcome you to share your service ideas, consider joining as a member, or simply celebrate with us as we reflect on our service projects and giving over the last couple of years.
We have fun on Kiwanis Peanut Day, and throughout the year, raising funding for teen scholarships, community grants, and service projects. Find out how you can donate, apply for grants or scholarships, or participate in fundraising.

 Service is at the heart of our club. Learn more about upcoming volunteer opportunities to engage with your friends and neighbors to help in the community.  If you have an idea for a service project in our community, contact us.

 We enjoy volunteering side-by-side for good causes, helping to seed the start of community events like Lincoln School's Science Expo, and learning more about the community from guest speakers during our meetings. Join us.
