The Kiwanis solution
Throughout the years, Kiwanis International has made children happier and healthier, and millions of kids have been able to enjoy better lives as a result. One of the ways Kiwanis helps is through contributions to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In fact, since Children's Miracle Network Hospitals first broadcast in 1983, Kiwanis has donated more than US$36 million. Kiwanis leaders encourage clubs to continue supporting communities and children by contributing to CMN hospitals.
About Children’s Miracle Network
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. When a donation is given it stays in the community, ensuring that every dollar is helping local kids. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of our mission to save an improve the lives of as many children as possible.

To ensure children’s hospitals have the resources they need, CMN partners like Kiwanis conduct thousands of special events and grassroots fundraisers year-round. Circle K and Key Clubs hold Dance Marathons to help generate millions of dollars each year to provide life-saving and crucial services kids need.
