Our commitment to Youth
While Kiwanis International takes on large-scale challenges, such as fighting disease and poverty worldwide, The Kiwanis Club of Staunton is focused on supporting youth in the Staunton and Augusta County areas. Our Kiwanis members are generous with their time through our community projects which include marshaling the Staunton Christmas parade, coordinating the Staunton Babe Ruth Baseball program at Gypsy Hill Park since 1947, and assisting with the Model General Assembly for Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County, where students participate in mock state government. Kiwanis members are passionate about making a difference in our community, and we have fun along the way!
For more than a century, Kiwanis has created opportunities for children to be curious, safe and healthy regardless of the community in which they live. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things can happen. Locally we embrace our parent organization’s goals and help empower youth and create communities where they are safe and can lead healthy lives.
We have provided thousands of these stickers to Augusta Health to give to new parents to place on their child’s car seats.
Our weekly lunch meetings are held each Thursday at The Club at Ironwood. Meetings include updates of club activities, Happy Dollars, and a guest speaker from the community. If you would be interested in making a presentation to our club click here.
Please join us as a guest and experience first hand who we are and what we do.
Kiwanis Foundation of Staunton
Our foundation raises funds to support the Babe Ruth Baseball program and offer grants and scholarships. If you are a local organization who serves youth in our area please feel free to contact us to request funding. We are planning a fundraising golf tournament for the Fall of 2021 to support People Places, the Valley Children’s Advocacy Center, and CASA. Sponsors and players will be needed. The event will be held at The Club at Ironwood.
Key Club Sponsorships
Our Kiwanis club supports the Staunton High School Key Club who do a number of service projects in our community. We also facilitate the Key Club meetings, provide mentorships and provide college scholarships for the Key Club students.
