Our Kiwanis Club and Kiwanis Foundation, who are separate organizations, are located at 100 North Staebler Rd., Suite C., Ann Arbor, MI 48103. This is at the NE corner of Jackson Rd and Staebler Rd. Prior to 1964 our Club used the sales of donated goods to raise funds for gifts and grants. In 1964 the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation was created as a separate organization to take over and enhance the Kiwanis Thrift Sale, and to increase gifting. We are members, volunteers, and staff who help children, youth, families, and our community. Our Club is one of the largest Kiwanis Clubs in Michigan. Come join with us!
