The Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma, originally known as the Kiwanis Club of West Toronto, earned its name for saving the abandoned Casa Loma in 1936 and turning it into one of the premier heritage tourist attractions in the City of Toronto. For more than 75 years, the Club cared for Casa Loma and it used a portion of its management fees to fund an extensive program of community services.
In 2013, Liberty Entertainment Group gained operation of this estate and established a very supportive working relationship with the Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma.
Our service projects are guided by the Kiwanis International motto, “Serving the children of the world”.
Kiwanis helps kids around the world. Our Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma looks out for our community and the Kiwanis international organization takes on large-scale challenges, such as fighting disease and poverty. Our Kiwanis club is generous with its time. We are creative with our ideas. We are passionate about making a difference. And we have fun along the way!
For more than a century, Kiwanis has created opportunities for children to be curious, safe and healthy regardless of the community in which they live. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things can happen.
Kiwanis Mission & Vision
Kiwanis empowers communities to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children. Kiwanis strives to be a positive influence in communities worldwide — so that one day, all children will wake up in communities that believe in them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive. Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma fulfills the Kiwanis mission by serving our community through our various community service projects.
Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it’s located. Members stage approximately 150,000 service projects and raise nearly US$100 million every year for communities, families and projects. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.
Kiwanis clubs focus on changing the world by serving children, one child in our community at a time. To reach more people and have a greater service impact on their communities, many clubs sponsor a Kiwanis family club — K-Kids for primary school children; Builders Clubs for adolescents; Key Clubs for teens; Circle K clubs for university students and Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities.
