The Kiwanis Club of Temecula Valley was founded in 1979. This high-profile, distinguished service club has long been dedicated to serving the needs of the community in the greater Temecula Valley and is a proud member of Kiwanis International.


Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. This nearly 100-year old organization annually raises more than $100 million and dedicates more than 18.5 million hours to strengthen communities and help children. Through service projects and fundraisers, Kiwanis members improve their communities, make lifelong friendships, and, most importantly, help children thrive, prosper and reach their full potential.


The Kiwanis Club of Temecula Valley is focused on serving the needs of their community with emphasis on children, but is also involved in projects that serve others. For example, we sponsor eleven area Key Clubs at local high schools, give a number of scholarships each year to high school graduates, support the Boys and Girls Clubs, Oak Grove, Assistance League, Michelle’s Place, and the local food bank. We also partner with the City of Temecula and the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce on a variety of events, host two mobile blood drives each year, and provide support to other local charitable organizations, among other community service oriented programs.


We are proud of our accomplishments over the past two-plus decades, and are committed to doing even more to serve our cherished community here in the greater Temecula Valley.
