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 2020-2021 Kiwanis year, which kicked off on October 01, 2020! The Board of Directors has developed the following goals for this year: 

  • Unite the citizens of Howard County together in service 
  • As an organization, be committed to helping Howard County children
  • Feed children in our community 
  • Help our service leadership program clubs (K-Kids, Key Club, and CKI) weather the COVID-19 pandemic to remain strong in 2021 and beyond
  • Partner with the service leadership program clubs (K-Kids, Key Club, and CKI) we sponsor to perform at least two joint service projects
  • Add five new members to our club roster in order to expand our reach into the community 
  • Promote ourselves more often and more broadly within Howard County 
  • Strive to be an organization that is known for its inclusive nature
