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.

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.

*This award is available for all gifts made to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund, The Eliminate Project, the endowment and annual gifts. This award is not available for gifts made to other special programs.

Hixson Fellows receive a commemorative tie tack/lapel pin and two numbered medallions hanging from blue-and-white ribbons: one encased in a walnut box for display, and one to be worn
