Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time.


“To offer service and leadership opportunities to those who desire to serve the needs of children, youth and adults in our local community.”


  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than the material values of life.
  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
  • To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards.
  • To develop by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic services, and to build better communities.
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism, which makes possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and good will.

Kiwanis Playground Workday

Join us on Saturday, August 6th from 9-11:00am as we work on finishing our Kiwanis Playground at Transformation Village, the women and children’s homeless shelter. (30 Olin Haven Way)

As we approach the start of a new school year, The Kiwanis Club of Asheville is preparing its annual school supply project! This year we’ll be focusing on the school we adopted, Johnston Elementary School, to help them purchase needed supplies for students and teachers throughout the school year.

We could use your help!

Since 1919, the Kiwanis Club of Asheville has worked to meet the needs of children and families in our area. For three years now due to COVID 19, we have had to postpone our biggest fundraiser, The Biltmore Kiwanis 5k/15k Race. Every donation you make today, will help us make a difference in the life of a local child tomorrow. Please use the link below to donate to our efforts, and know how much we appreciate your support! https://pages.donately.com/ashevill…/form/frm_34a58370314e
