Our History

Kiwanis Club of Richmond, Indiana proud of our long history of supporting our community.

Kiwanis of Richmond, Indiana was founded in 1920 . The club began with just 100 members and has grown to its current membership of 133 . Over the years, the club has held many fundraisers, including annual auctions, calendar sales and other events. We help out in the community in a variety of ways including sponsoring youth groups, raising money to benefit children and children's support groups, and providing scholarships.

The club has enjoyed a rich history over the years, with its members coming from fields like accounting, civil service, education, management, and many more.

For more information about us, check out our News page and our Activities Calendar. And to see what we're doing with kids in the area, why not take a look at our Sponsored Youth page?


The Kiwanis Legion of Honor is given to those members in 5 year intervals who have 25 years or more membership.
