There is no other way to give to so many areas—to touch the lives of so many children and communities—and in so many different ways than by giving a Gift of Today. Gifts of Today come to the Kiwanis Children's Fund from individuals, clubs and other entities. These gifts are the backbone of our organization. Through consistent yearly gifts, one person, one club and one contribution at a time, Kiwanians extend their impact to the children of the world. 

The Today Club program honors clubs that achieve a minimum per-member giving level from active dues-paying members during the Kiwanis administrative year, which runs from October 1 through September 30.

Port Townsend Kiwanis has earned the Blue Level Today Club Patch for 2016-2017!
