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

The Indiana District of Kiwanis was organized in South Bend on December 27, 1918 to serve the seven clubs in the state: Indianapolis, Lafayette, South Bend, Elkhart, Marion, Fort Wayne, and Evansville.  Now over 90 years later, the Indiana District remains active with 24 divisions and 195 clubs.

Message from the District Governor

Governor's Message

As we approach the end of the Kiwanis year, I encourage every Indiana Kiwanis club and member to consider making our Riley Hospital for Children project a priority. 

This year we are raising funds to support the ChildLife program at Riley. ChildLife specialists are child development experts who work to ensure that life remains as normal as possible for children in health care settings and other challenging environments. They promote effective coping through play, self-expression activities, and age-appropriate medical preparation and education. As advocates of family-centered care, ChildLife specialists work in partnership with doctors, nurses, social workers and others to meet the unique emotional, developmental and cultural needs of each child and family. For more information about the daily work of ChildLife specialists, click here.

Take a look at your club budget for the year. Are there some funds remaining that you could put to good use at Riley? We are close to meeting our goal for the year. Help us make it happen! Thank you for your generosity and how strongly you support our partnership with Riley. 

In Kiwanis Service,
Vanessa McClary
