What We Do As Kiwanians for Our Children and for Our Community!

For over 80 years, the Kiwanis Club of Canandaigua has been an active and benevolent part of the community in Canandaigua, NY. We're glad you are interested in our club and what we do, and we invite you to learn more. Perhaps you may even consider becoming a member and helping us in our mission to serve the children of the world. Membership benefits are numerous, including amazing volunteer opportunities, great social events, relationships with community-minded individuals, and of course service to children, seniors, veterans, and the community.
In 2023, 75 members of Canandaigua Kiwanis and 54 members of our sponsored youth clubs participated in more than two dozen service projects and activities, devoting 700+ hours to activities including, but not limited to:
  • Holiday party at the Salvation Army with gifts and activities for children and their families
  • Easter Egg Hunt at the Canandaigua Primary/Elementary School with 9,000 Eggs and dozens of gift basket and bicycle giveaways
  • Monthly Senior Bingo with prizes for senior citizens
  • A Kids Carnival with games and prizes for over 200 children and families
  • Outdoor movie nights in the park on a large screen for local families
  • Bike Rodeo for grade school children to learn bicycle safety
  • Development of an Inclusion in Motion playground for children of all abilities
  • Wheelchair Escorting of Veterans to events and revitalization of their Serenity Gardens
  • Over 1,000 bags of candy distributed to children at 2 locations during Halloween
But that's not all!  Kiwanis raises over $45,000 every year in fundraising programs, supporting local organizations, including:
  • Safe Harbors of the Finger Lakes
  • Seven Local Scholarships
  • Eleven Campers to Kamp Kiwanis
  • Ontario Historical Society
  • Family Promise
  • The American Red Cross
  • The Salvation Army
  • Honor Flight
  • Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts
  • The Canandaigua Emergency Squad
  • And Many, Many More!
YES, it is true we do a lot, and we work hard. 
BUT, it's fun and it's all worth the effort if we can help children and others in our community.
