Changing the World One Child and One Community at a Time

Learn how you can make a lasting contribution

Sometimes all it takes is a single act of kindness to make an impact. At the University Kiwanis Club, we are unified in our belief that children and their communities benefit from the efforts of a proficient group of caring and involved volunteers. We've achieved so much during our 66 years of work in the Wichita Falls area, including building new playgrounds and starting school programs and youth clubs. But there are still children who need our help. Will you accept the challenge?

The most effective way to reach these children is through expanding the Kiwanis membership. If you'd like to learn more about how you can donate, volunteer or join, contact a member of our nonprofit today.

Leaving our mark, today and tomorrow

The University Kiwanis Club has been involved in the Wichita Falls community for over six decades. During that time, we've developed, funded and launched several important programs and events, including:

  • A recent playground finished in March of 2021
  • The annual pancake festival
  • Christmas projects for children
  • Youth clubs and leadership programs
Thank you, Wichita Falls, for supporting our club over the years and helping us make a difference for the children of our community and around the world. If you'd like to attend a meeting, we get together each Wednesday at noon at Red Lobster. We hope to see you there.

The Bridge Builder

Will Allen Dromgoole (1860 – 1934) An old man, going a lone highway, Came at the evening cold and gray To a chasm vast and deep and wide Through which was flowing a swollen tide. The old man crossed in the twilight dim; The rapids held no...
