Kiwanis International provides tools, resources and other support to help clubs, divisions and districts thrive—so Kiwanis can be a positive global force, united to improve the world. Membership dues make this possible.
Stewardship of the budget is a responsibility Kiwanis International does not take lightly. While it has been 12 years since the most recent dues increase, staff and the board have worked carefully to operate within the same budget constraints set in 2003—in fact, decreasing spending by $3.9 million since 2005.
Rising inflation and decreased dues revenue have now, however, brought the organization’s financial future in question.
As Kiwanis works to strengthen membership and identify and create new non-dues income sources, the Kiwanis International Board is proposing two amendments to provide both a short- and long-term approach to maximize support available to clubs, divisions and districts immediately and in the future: a one-time flat increase of US$10 per member* in 2015, plus the option to adjust dues not more than 5 percent thereafter, as needed.
Resources on this page are provided to help you understand the context of the proposed amendments, Kiwanis’ financial history and future.
