Kiwanis Rose Day is a hit everywhere, including every resident in a nursing home in Rock Island.

Kiwanis Scholarships help local students excel in College.

Great programs, like Ballet Quad Cities, inspire members each and every Monday at noon at the Quad City Botanical Center.

Through the Kiwanis First Day Fund, we help thousands of Rock Island students with a backpack of supplies.

Our Mission

To Improve the Quality of Life for Children and Families in the Quad Cities and Abroad.

The Kiwanis Club of Rock Island is one part of Kiwanis International, a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one community and one child at a time. The Kiwanis Club of Rock Island performs many community service projects in Rock Island to help serve children.

If you are interested in performing community service and helping children in Rock Island, we encourage you to learn more about the Kiwanis Club of Rock Island here on our site and welcome you to join us for a meeting.
