• Kiwanis International Convention - 2020
  • Our Mission: improving the world one child and one community at a time.

Defining Statement

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


Florida Kiwanis' Division 19 includes 11 clubs in Lee and Hendry counties in beautiful Southwest Florida, stretching from LaBelle in the east to Cape Coral in the west; from downtown Fort Myers in the north to San Carlos-Estero in the south.


Since 1922, Kiwanis clubs have been helping to improve life for the residents of Southwest Florida while giving its members opportunities for networking. From bringing spring training to Fort Myers to providing scholarships, from collecting supplies for hurricane victims to building parks, from distributing Christmas gifts to forgotten seniors in nursing homes to incentivizing kids in school to improve their grades, Kiwanians do improve the world!
