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.

If you are looking to donate to our Backpacks for Breaks service initiative, please visit our club’s giving page!


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



Help us combat food insecurity in Howard County! A donation of $21 will help us to feed a local child for a week of Winter or Spring Break. To learn more and make a donation, visit our giving page.
