About Our Club

The Kiwanis Club of Greater Plano is a non-profit organization that has been serving local communities since 1984. This Club is a thriving organization of service-minded men and women of all ages who enjoy social fellowship and respond to the unique needs of their communities and address worldwide issues by “Changing the world, one child and one community at a time”.

Every year the Club presents their Annual Butterfly Festival.  Families and students can observe butterflies flying in their natural setting.  This educational and philanthropic event raises money for children’s charities in our local community.

The Club has established a family of service programs designed to support the children and young adults of our communities at many levels.  Funds are donated for baby food to the Plano Food Pantry and for child health care to the Children’s Miracle Network and Juvenile Diabetes.  Locally the Club sponsors several Key Clubs (Shepton and Lovejoy High Schools and three High Schools in the Frisco ISD) where students provide service to their community.  Internationally the Club donated a computer and projector for a Nicaraguan Orphanage and sponsor local teachers to work with Jamaican teachers to improve their skills. Kiwanis International’s current effort is the ELIMINATE program to immunize mothers & babies worldwide against maternal & neonatal tetanus. Our contributions to the KI Foundation helps meet the needs of children and provides disaster relief to victims of hardships in the United States and worldwide. Scholarships are provided to local high school graduates and Collin College students.  In addition, our Club supports Special Olympics and Kid-netic Games in their efforts to meet the needs of the physically and mentally challenged members of our communities.

The Club’s Mission is “We invest in the future of our community”.
