The Purpose of Kiwanis
To give primacy to the Human and spiritual, rather then the material values of life.
To encourage living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
To promote the adoption and application of higher social, business and professional standards.
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 good will.
