"Serving the Community's Greatest Need."
Volunteers enriching Canadian Communities through Community Service, Leadership, and Partnership.
What we do
Clubs perform a wide variety of local fundraising and service projects. Each club assesses their community's greatest needs to determine what projects to undertake and how to distribute funds raised within its local community.
Around 6,500 members belong to approximately 480 Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs across Canada. Kinsmen clubs are predominantly male, Kinette clubs are predominantly female and Kin clubs have a mixed membership of men and women.
More than $1 billion raised
Since our founding in 1920, Kin Canada clubs have donated more than $1 billion to Canadian causes, communities and individuals in need, as well as to disaster relief efforts beyond our borders.
Kin Canada has been a partner in the fight against cystic fibrosis since 1964. During this time, Kin members have raised over $40 million in support of the work of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
Located in Cambridge, Ont., nine full-time staff provide administrative services to the Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs across the country.
