Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Fargo’s website. We are a forward thinking, service driven organization. Kiwanis members don’t just do service, however; they enjoy fellowship and fun as well. Members make new friends, network, attend meetings, and participate in social events.
The Kiwanis Club of Fargo is part of Kiwanis International, a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Members of the Kiwanis family stage nearly 150,000 service projects, complete 6 million hours of service, and raise nearly $100 million each year for communities projects.
Fargo Kiwanians are dedicated to serving children and families of our community. Proceeds from our annual pancake karnival and fundraising activities are used to sponsor Kiwanis family clubs such as K-Kids for elementary school children, Builders Clubs for middle school students, Key Clubs for high schoolers, Circle K Clubs for college students, and Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities. We also support many area organizations including Special Olympics, the YMCA, the YWCA, Boy Scouts of America, Fraser, Ltd., the Rape & Abuse Crisis Center, the Boys and Girls Clubs, and Trollwood.
Kiwanis International has joined forces with UNICEF to confront another threat to the world’s children. The current worldwide service project is The Eliminate Project, eliminating maternal/neonatal tetanus around the world. This fundraiser aims to protect 129 million mothers and their future babies from MNT by the year 2015.

Our members meet at noon each Tuesday at the Fargo Country Club located at 509 26th Ave S in Fargo, ND. Our weekly luncheon programs provide an opportunity for members and guests to enjoy lunch, faithful traditions, good fellowship and listen to our program speakers. Visitors are encouraged and always welcome to join us. The Kiwanis Club of Fargo has approximately 120 active Kiwanians on our membership roster, and we’re always looking for more men and women with a heart for servant leadership to join us. Please contact me or any Kiwanis member for more information about our club.
