Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Butte, Montana
Our members are committed to developing future generations of leaders through guidance and example. We are ordinary people performing extraordinary work to help children. Since 1946, the Butte Kiwanis Club has sponsored the Kiwanis Childrens Sunshine Camp which includes four one-week sessions for children from primarily low income families. We also sponsor the Butte area NFL Punt, Pass and Kick Contest and the Butte High School Key Club. It is through the provision of these social, educational, and physical endeavors that the Butte Kiwanis Club improves the lives of children.
Kiwanis International: As an affiliate of Kiwanis International, the Butte Kiwanis Club is a charitable organization of volunteers dedicated to serving children and underserved populations in and around the community of Butte, Montana. Founded in 1921, our club will continue to improve the lives of children, underserved populations, and our community by developing future generations of leaders by guidance and example as well as education and personal sacrifice.
Our Purpose:Committed to this mission and vision, Butte Kiwanis mentors children and underserved populations through its Service Leadership Programs. In this regard, Butte Kiwanis will continue to sponsor the Kiwanis Children's Sunshine Camp, the Butte area NFL Punt, Pass and Kick Contest, and the Butte High School Key Club.
Our Goals: As a non-profit organization, Butte Kiwanis receives donations for maintaining its funds and properties in order to support its Service Leadership Programs. Most expenses go to the operation, maintenance, expansion and development of the building complex at the Kiwanis Children's Sunshine Camp.
Our Future: While its focus is on its Service Leadership Programs, Butte Kiwanis is open to working with and/or accepting responsibilities from other charitable organizations for other causes including religious, scientific, literary and academic by either direct participation or contributions as long as they fall under 501C(3) regulations of the IRS.
