George F. Hixson Fellowship


In 1983, the Kiwanis Children's Fund established the George F. Hixson Fellowship. Named for Kiwanis International’s first president, Hixson Fellowships are awarded to donors who give US$1,000 or more to the Children's Fund.* It’s a way of recognizing people who have contributed significantly to Kiwanis’ history of generosity. In fact, clubs and Kiwanians often give in honor of another person or organization—recognizing others’ help and commitment with a Hixson Fellowship.

*This award is available for all unrestricted gifts made to the Kiwanis Children's Fund within the same Kiwanis year (October-September). Please note that the George F. Hixson Fellowship includes a lapel pin, wearable medallion and club banner patch.  An optional engraved plaque can be purchased for an additional US$100 upon request.

Become a Diamond Level

If a Hixson Fellow gives, or is recognized by, a second US$1,000 donation, they will receive a diamond pin and a special tab to affix to the lapel pin. Additional US$1,000 gifts are recognized with sequentially numbered tabs to signify the diamond level achieved.
