Since 1915, Kiwanis has grown to a worldwide movement of more than 6000 clubs including a half-million members. The Kiwanis Club of Cleveland helped establish Clubs all over the State of Ohio. In 1965, 127 Cleveland Kiwanians and their spouses traveled to Vienna Austria to establish the first Kiwanis Club outside North America.

Kiwanis International is divided into Districts. Larger states, such as Ohio, are a single district. Small states, provinces and territories join together to form their districts. The Ohio District of Kiwanis operates an office in Columbus Ohio. You can visit the Ohio District at www.ohiokiwanis.org.
Groups of 8 to 15 Clubs within the State meet occasionally and are organized as Divisions. The Cleveland Kiwanis Club is a member of the Ohio 15th Division led by Lt. Governor William Spring (a member of the Downtown Kiwanis Club).
