The Kelowna Kinsmen is a co-ed club within Kin Canada, the only All-Canadian Service Organization (celebrating 102 years in 2022).
We join thousands of other like-minded Kin around the country in Having FUN while we raise FUNDS for much needed projects that each club deems most needed in their communities.
We all contribute to District and National projects as well, including our 48+ year partnership with Cystic Fibrosis Canada and the Kinsmen Foundation in BC (60+ years).
We have decades of experience in personal development in our members and mentor today’s and tomorrow’s community leaders.
We do all this while having fun, making new life-long friendships and learning new desirable skills. Meet interesting community contacts, and give back to your community in a positive way.
Have a say in where it’s needed the most.
