                  Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Poway, CA!


Since 1973 the Kiwanis Club of Poway has been helping local children and having a good time doing it! We're known as the club that gets things done! Our 65 members meet each Thursday in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Frankly, we're a bit non-traditional and proud of it!

Our service projects range from cooking meals for young cancer patients and burn victims to providing holiday gifts for needy kids and scholarships to high school seniors. We work closely with Rady Children's Hospital, The Summit for Children Worldwide and the San Pasqual Academy, the country's only residential high school for foster teens. 

We also help children and teens learn the value of community service through sponsorships of the K-Kids Club at Painted Rock Elementary School, the Builders Club at Twin Peaks Middle School and the Key Club at Poway High School. We will soon charter an Aktion Club for developmentally disabled adults and are reactiving the Circle K Club at Cal State San Marcos.

Our major fundraiser is the annual Padres Spring Training Kickoff Luncheon, held each February. A short video from the 2015 event can be found here.

Check out the "News" column on the right side of this page for updates.

The club meets for breakfast on the second, third, fourth and fifth Thursday mornings, 7 a.m. at The Hamburger Factory in Old Poway Park. On the first Thursday we meet instead after work for drinks and dinner the same location. 

Can't make morning meetings? No problem! We have a service-only membership option just for you! Click on "Contact Us" for more information.
