About Kiwanis

The Kiwanis Club of Portage is a volunteer service organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and families in our community, while offering our members opportunities for education, fellowship, fun, and networking. Portage Kiwanis is a part of a global volunteer organization dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Information on Kiwanis International can be found at


The club hosts many fundraisers throughout the year. Getting Pink'd, Brat Sales, Bingo, Candy Bar Sales, and our Ride to Read. The money raised is used for many things to benefit the community. Renovations to Pauquette Park, support for the Portage Splash Pad, scholarships, bike registrations, i-pads for children with autism, and books for children are just a few examples.

We also sponsor the High School branch of Kiwanis, the Key Club. Key Club is an international student-led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership.
