Be a part of the Hixson tradition

Apr 20, 2016
As Kiwanis International’s first president, George F. Hixson paved the way for the leaders who would follow. In 1983, the Kiwanis International Foundation honored his inaugural presidency—and more than 50 years of Kiwanis service—by establishing the George F. Hixson Fellowship.

As a way of recognizing people who have contributed significantly to Kiwanis’ history of generosity, the George F. Hixson Fellowship is bestowed upon donors who give US$1,000 or more to our foundation.

With your one-time gift or two-year pledge, you support the Kiwanis Children's Fund—helping fund grants to Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs as well as Kiwanis clubs, districts and district foundations.

Become a George F. Hixson Fellow by making a gift today. Or give in honor of another—recognizing someone’s special commitment with a Hixson Fellowship in their name.

If you plan to proudly wear your Hixson Fellowship recognition during the Kiwanis International convention this summer, make your gift and request recognition no later than May 20, 2016. This will ensure proper time for processing and shipping.

And remember: If all of your club members are Hixson Fellows, you can apply to be a George F. Hixson Fellow Club!
