Dedicated to helping children
The Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute (KPTI) is a non-profit organization located in Boston, Massachusetts, that is committed to keeping children safe. It was founded in 1981 by the Kiwanis Foundation of New England in partnership with Tufts Medical Center.
KPTI was created to address the need for better medical care, research, and safety outreach programs for children who have suffered from trauma. KPTI is supported by various organizations such as The Boston Foundation, the New England District of Key Clubs, Circle K, and individual donations. Local high school Key Clubs and university Circle K groups help KPTI with outreach programs by raising funds, developing new programs and implementing programs in schools.
KPTI partners with several organizations, such as the Greater Boston Safe Kids Coalition, the Partnership for Passenger Safety and ThinkFirst National Injury Prevention Foundation.
