The Objects of Kiwanis


The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved at the 1924 Convention in Denver, Colorado. These objects have never been changed.


· To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.

· To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.

· To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.

· To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.

· To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.

· To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
