To better reflect its mission of serving children, the Kiwanis International Foundation changed its name to the Kiwanis Children's Fund in October.
The new name emphasizes the people we serve -— children; and the way we serve them -- by collecting and distributing funds to meet the most important needs of children. Learn more in a message from Kiwanis International President Jane Erickson and Kiwanis Children’s Fund President Chia Sing Hwang.
