Our Charitable Events & School Club Sponsorships
The Kiwanis Club of Windsor continually searches out ways to address the unmet needs of children in our community. We participate in a number of charitable activities and Kiwanis-sponsored school clubs. If you would like to assist us with these activities, please consider joining our club.
We provide academic scholarships to Windsor High School students based on student performance and need.
We work with the Knights of Columbus, the Lions Club, and the Rotary Club to provide dictionaries to third grade students throughout Windsor

Kiwanis Family House
We sponsor the Kiwanis Family House in conjunction with Cal-Nev-Ha Kiwanis and the UC Davis Medical Center. Since its opening in 1984, the Kiwanis Family House has housed more than 10,000 families from around the United States and the world. The house provides temporary quarters for families of patients at the medical center, mostly children, who live in other communities where the specialized care they need is not available.
We contribute to both the Cal-Nev-Ha Kiwanis District Foundation and Kiwanis International Foundation, which distribute targeted matching grants.
Key Club at Windsor High School
High school leaders from 76 countries unite every day to provide service in their homes, schools, and communities, and complete more than 12 million hours of service. Key Clubbers work to help eliminate HIV/AIDS in Africa, stop premature birth eliminate iodine deficiencies, and battle for the rights of children in their communities.
