George F. Hixson Fellowship

In 1983, the Kiwanis International Foundation established the George F. Hixson Fellowship. Named for Kiwanis International’s first president, Hixson Fellowships are bestowed upon donors who give US$1,000 or more to our foundation*. 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.     

Become a Diamond Level

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.

George F. Hixson Fellow Club

Any Kiwanis club in which all dues-paying members are George F. Hixson Fellows will be recognized as a 100% George F. Hixson Fellow Club. Recognition will be based on September 30 certified membership as determined by Kiwanis International. Let the foundation know if your club is a George F. Hixson Fellow Club.
