Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.  

The Capital District of Kiwanis International (composed of all the Kiwanis Clubs in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia) was organized on August 29, 1918 with only two clubs. Now almost 100 years later, the Capital District remains active with 6 regions, 17 divisions and 155 clubs.



Capital District will be holding a District Dinner at the Kiwanis International Convention in Toronto on Thursday, June 23rd from 5-7pm.  The cost is $60/person and the menu will include a four wave buffet including smoked salmon, steak, prawns, lobster, sliders to say the least.   Please send a check payable to Capital District Kiwanis to PO Box 2192, Ashland,  VA 23005 by June 16th to reserve your spot.  


Once again, Capital District will hold three Leadership Development Conferences in the Northern, Southeastern and Southwestern portions of the district to help Kiwanians grow as leaders. These events are open to all members. Click the link for your closest event for more information and to register today. You won't want to miss this conference. 


The schedule for Club Leadership Education sessions in the Capital District is now available.  If you have been elected as the 2016-2017 president or secretary of your club, please consult the schedule located here and register to attend this free, but very important event!

What if you could save a baby's life?

With The Eliminate Project, you can. Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) kills one baby every nine minutes. But three doses of a 60-cent vaccine can protect mothers and babies. Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined forces to bring this vaccine to 38 countries, eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. What can you do right now? Learn about MNT and advocate for the cause. Participate in our fundraisers. Over the next few years, the work we do will change the world. Find out more at
