George F. Hixson Fellowship

In 1983, the Kiwanis Children's Fund established the George F. Hixson Fellowship. Named for Kiwanis International’s first president, Hixson Fellowships are awarded to donors who give US$1,000 or more to the Children's Fund.* It’s a way of recognizing people who have contributed significantly to Kiwanis’ history of generosity. In fact, clubs and Kiwanians often give in honor of another person or organization—recognizing others’ help and commitment with a Hixson Fellowship.

Consider making a gift today toward a George F. Hixson Fellowship for yourself or to honor someone else with one.

If a Hixson Fellow gives, or is recognized by, a second US$1,000 donation, they will receive a diamond pin and a special tab to affix to the lapel pin. Additional US$1,000 gifts are recognized with sequentially numbered tabs to signify the diamond level achieved.
