Brooksville Kiwanis Club Foundation

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on December 1, 2021

The Kiwanis Club of Brooksville was chartered on March 22, 1923.

Brooksville Kiwanis Club Foundation

The 39 original members initially focused on city and county beautification projects
during the 1920s, but soon branched into serving youth in Brooksville and
Hernando County.
The club members worked very hard in the 1990s to establish the Brooksville
Kiwanis Foundation to raise capital for continuing Hernando County, Brooksville
and Club projects. Today, the Foundation’s Endowment funds several
scholarships that are awarded to local students each year to help them
complete their educations; the club co-sponsors the Annual Greater Hernando
County Chamber of Commerce Student Recognition Celebration.

Starting this fall the Club’s Foundation will be holding quarterly check presentations
supporting Education and Non-Profits in Hernando County
