Who We Are 

The Exchange Club of Kiawah-Seabrook was founded in 1982 and is a member of the National Exchange Club, an over 100 year old organization based in Toledo, Ohio with over 700 chapters located throughout the United States. The motto of the National Exchange Club is “Unity for Service”. This embraces both the social aspect of the Club as well as our commitment to serve the communities we live in. The Club’s social purpose is reflected in two dinner meetings each month in which we invite guest speakers to address topics of interest to our members. We also have a charitable purpose where we support four key areas that include prevention of child abuse, community service, youth and education and Americanism. Through both fundraising efforts and the support of our Exchange Club of Kiawah-Seabrook Foundation, the Club has been able to fund grants in excess of $ 1,000,000 over the last ten years. We welcome anyone who is interested in meeting new people and helping their community.
