Who is Kiwanis?

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!

 The Six Objects of Kiwanis

  1.  To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the  material values of life.
  2.  To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human  relationships.
  3.  To promote the adoption and the application of higher social,  business and  professional standards.
  4.  To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive  and serviceable citizenship.
  5.  To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form  enduring friendships, to render altruistic service and build better  communities.
  6.  To cooperate in creating and maintaining sound public opinion and  high idealism, which make possible the increase of righteousness,  justice, patriotism and  goodwill.
