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