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

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

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

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

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

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