The Kiwanis Club of Cincinnati works to help alleviate poverty and hunger in the Cincinnati community, and build leadership, self-confidence, and a passion for volunteerism in today’s youth. Kiwanis has also committed to virtually eliminating Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus by partnering with UNICEF and their efforts. As a chapter of Kiwanis International, we are volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child, one community at a time.
These are tough economic times, and it may not be possible to give as much as we’d like. But it’s even tougher for those in need in our community, especially the children of our community. Recently it was announced that Cincinnati has the third highest rate of childhood poverty in the nation! 48% of the children in our community live in poverty. Please consider donating to the Cincinnati Kiwanis Foundation to support the children of Cincinnati.

In nearly 40 countries around the world, the poorest women are susceptible to Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus. Kiwanis International has partnered with UNICEF through The Eliminate Project to deliver life saving vaccines that protect the mother and her unborn children for ten years from this disease which kills 1 infant every 9 minutes in an excrutiatingly painful way. The vaccine costs just $2.
Kiwanis has pledged to raise $110 million dollars and the Cincinnati Kiwanis club has pledged to donate $100,000 for the project, giving UNICEF the last push of funding to virtually eliminate this disease for which there is a cure.
