Kiwanis Club of Granville

Kiwanis is an organization of volunteers, dedicated to serving the children of the world, one child and one community at a time. Our club has over 90 members. We host the annual Granville Kiwanis 4th of July Celebration. Our fundraisers include our annual Pancake Breakfast, tent and table rentals and homemade maple syrup sales. We support many community projects including the Wildwood Playground Rebuild and our Sugar Maple Arboretum at Spring Valley Nature Preserve.

We support the youth through our service leadership programs: Kiwanis Kids (K-Kids), Builders Club, Key Club, Circle K, Aktion Club, Key Leader. We support the Scouts, 4H, the Granville Recreation District, the schools, boosters, and many local non-profits.

We complete our charitable service activities through our Granville KIwanis Foundation (501c3).
