Club Projects

Our Fairfield Kiwanis Club participates in a variety of projects throughout the year that involve fundraising, community service and assisting children locally. 

Additionally, we have speakers at our weekly meetings to explore topics of interest to the membership. We engage in a number of social activities to share experiences, talents and our collective interests. All represent great opportunities for service, friendships and personal growth.

READ TO GROW: Over the last ten years  we have collected and donated over 75,000 books to READ TO GROW that dispenses books throughout CT.

Ronald McDonald House: In 2016 we donated $5,000 towards the creation of the new Ronald McDonald House in CT.

Boys & Girls Club: Our support of the Wakeman Boys & Girls Club included two donations in 2016.  We donated $10,000 to help secure the purchase of a new 12 passenger van to replace a vehicle that was nearly 20 years old.  In addition, Wakeman was presented with $5,500 from our 2016 charity golf outing held at Oronoque Country Club.

Scholarships: Each year we provide scholarships to several high school seniors to assist in their first year of college.  In 2016 we presented $9,000 to four worthy recipients.

Please see the Photos section of our website for more information on these Events.
