About Kiwanis

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.

Kiwanis Name
The name “Kiwanis” means “we trade” or “we share our talents.” It was coined from an American Indian expression, Nunc Kee-wanis.

Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities. Kiwanis members help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and care for the sick. They develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research, and much more. No problem is too big or too small. Why? Because working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!


Objects of Kiwanis

The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the succeeding decades, they have remained unchanged.

Object 1: To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.

Object 2: To encour­age the dai­ly liv­ing of the Gold­en Rule in all human rela­tion­ships.

Object 3: To pro­mote the adop­tion and the appli­ca­tion of high­er social, busi­ness and pro­fes­sion­al stan­dards.

Object 4: To devel­op, by pre­cept and exam­ple, a more intel­li­gent, aggres­sive and ser­vice­able cit­i­zen­ship.

Object 5: To pro­vide, through Kiwa­nis clubs, a prac­ti­cal means to form endur­ing friend­ships, to ren­der altru­is­tic ser­vice and to build bet­ter com­mu­ni­ties.

Object 6: To coop­er­ate in cre­at­ing and main­tain­ing that sound pub­lic opin­ion and high ide­al­ism which make pos­si­ble the increase of right­eous­ness, jus­tice, patri­o­tism and good will.
