Fordham Kiwanis

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. The Kiwanis Family is comprised of over 650,000 active members of all ages representing 80 nations, who work to help improve people's lives.

Fordham Kiwanis was chartered in 1989. Our club is composed of members from all areas of the Fordham community: administrators, faculty, staff, and alumni. We sponsor Circle K for college students at Rose Hill and Lehman College and support middle school students in MS 45 Builders' Club, and elementary school children at PS205 in the Bronx. Meetings and service projects are generally held each month.

Kiwanis International is one of the leading global community service organizations presently serving the health, education, and safety needs of children. 

If you would like to become a member or learn more about Fordham Kiwanis, please contact Sister Anne Marie Kirmse via email at amkirmse@gmail.com

Kiwanis Motto

To serve the children of the world!

Kiwanis Values

Committed to the Six Objects, adopted in 1924, which are:

  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to 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, more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism making possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
