Kiwanis is a global organization dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Many club activities, fund raising events and projects are designed to further those aims.
Kiwanians around the world have joined to raise $110 million to rid the world of maternal/neonatal tetanus, the second world wide project undertaken by Kiwanis. The world wide project called the "Eliminate Project" is our way of saving or protecting a life through donation. Just $1.80 will immunize women and babies. Millions of women in remote locations of 30 countries still need to be immunized. Kiwanis Club of Tamarac is a Model Club guaranteeing our 5 year commitment.
Our club's fund raising efforts allow us to support a variety of community programs. 100% of charitable donations go toward club projects.
The 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 goodwill.
