Join us

There are many ways to join or participate in your local Kiwanis Club of River Forest and Oak Park: 
  • Attend a monthly meeting. Monthly meetings often have interesting presentations from local organizations and inspiring teens or young adults. Recent guest speakers include: Crevent Puppeteer, Impact, etc.
  • Volunteer for a service project. Service projects and fundraising events offer you a chance to come out and play with us. You do not need to be a member to participate. 
  • Become a member! Members help support the club activities, elect officers, and make decisions about club projects and giving.  Members pay annual dues of $110 to support the administrative costs of the club. This ensures that all donations go directly to service projects. Contact us if you are interested in joining.

You are invited! Join us for a special membership party on Agust 25, graciously hosted by Jeff Cappelli (contact the kiwanis email: for details).
