Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Stuart, Florida
Serving Martin County since April 1, 1938
The Kiwanis Club of Stuart (KCOS) was formed on April 1, 1938 and through its members and Foundation (the Kiwanis Club of Stuart, Florida, Foundation, Inc.) has since continuously provided much needed service to the residents of Martin County.
Some of our major projects over the years include the Martin County pool located at Martin County High School; Kiwanis Park at Woodlawn located in Stuart near Confusion Corner; the Courthouse gazebo; an annual clothes shopping trip for appoximately 70 underprivileged children; start up funding for the Martin County YMCA and Lyric Theatre; a shelter at the YMCA; sponsorships of youth organizations in many of the MC elementary, middle and high schools; the Adopt-A-Class program; years of assistance with Special Olympics; scholarships; and financial assistance to many organizations including the Boy Scouts, the ARC of Martin County, and Helping People Succeed. The club also provides many other smaller service projects to the community each year.
Our Foundation holds several annual fundraisers to raise funds to support our many projects: the Historical Ornaments of Martin County and a Sporting Clay Tournament. Details of each of the fundraisers may be found on the menu tab "Projects - Fundraising" on the left side of this page.
