Kiwanis Club of Skidaway raises awareness about at-risk children’s needs, and working to meet them is an integral part of all of our activities. We raise financial resources through our community events, our corporate sponsor program, and our members’ commitment of time, talent and treasure.

Since Kiwanis Club of Skidaway was established (in 1988, initially as Golden K of Skidaway), we have supported more than 40 area organizations in Chatham County and donated countless thousands of volunteer hours; and we have provided more than $1,400,000 of grants.  The primary focus of our fundraising is to support local agencies that serve at-risk children and their families.

During our fiscal year ended September 30, 2017, our club mobilized $58,450 to support projects and programs that serve children. $56,000 of grants were awarded on September 23, 2017 to the agencies listed below.

In addition during the year, the club provided $2,450 of grants to Kiwanis International, Kiwanis Georgia District and Richmond Hill Key Club.

Members continued private donations to Kiwanis Foundation for a global health project (The Eliminate Project) to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus worldwide, increasing total donations to date to over $25,000.
