  • Big Brothers/Sisters
  • Blue Zones Project in Iowa
  • Boy Scouts
  • Cedar Falls High School Scholarship
  • Cedar Falls Recreation
  • Cedar Valley Preschool
  • Circle K (Kiwanis at UNI)
  • Family Children Council

  • Kiwanis International "Skip a Meal" program
  • North East Iowa Food Bank
  • North East Iowa Kiwanis Foundation

We are doing what we can to improve the world, one child and one community at a time. 

Join us so that you can help us make a difference in the world.
