Kiwanis Club of Ellicott City

The Kiwanis Club of Ellicott City has been making a difference in the lives of children in Howard County, Maryland since 1940.

Our club has big plans for the 2021-2022 Kiwanis year, which kicked off on October 01, 2021! The Board of Directors has developed the following goals for this year: 

  • Recruit and retain 5 new members
  • Create a more inclusive club, with members spanning a variety of dimensions of diversity, in order to better reflect our Howard County community
  • Complete at least 1 new project with each of our sponsored Service Leadership Program (SLP) clubs
  • Recruit 1 new partner to fill a newly-identified community need
  • Engage our grant recipients in a two-way partnership after awarding their funding (such as inviting them to participate in a service project)
  • Develop and implement a project that is specific to the Ellicott City community
  • Complete a community needs assessment
