  7. George F. Hixson Fellowship

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. 

Consider making a gift today toward a George F. Hixson Fellowship for yourself — or to honor someone else with one. 

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.

If you have questions or need assistance, call the Children’s Fund at (800) 549-2647 (toll-free in the U.S. and Canada), or +1-317-217-6236 (worldwide). You can also email childrensfund@kiwanis.org.

*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 in recognition of your US$1,000 gift. A printed certificate is available on request. An optional personalized shadowbox, wearable medallion and club banner patch can be purchased at store.kiwanis.org/hixsonaward after making your gift.
