Serving Madison and Beyond for over 99 Years


The Kiwanis Club of Downtown Madison is a service club with a membership of around 90 men and women. It was founded in 1917 as one of the first Kiwanis Clubs in the State of Wisconsin. We are one of approximately 8,000 Kiwanis Clubs worldwide.

Our Mission
The Kiwanis Club of Downtown Madison is a diverse group of men and women who dedicate themselves to personal involvement and financial support focused on community needs and to club activities that foster personal growth and build camaraderie.

The club usually meets at the Madison Club at 5 E. Wilson St. on Mondays at 12:10 following a buffet lunch, although there are exceptions for a handful of days each year. In addition to the weekly luncheon meetings,
are a number of projects and activities available throughout the year.
