Help Us Help The Children of Greater Parsippany
Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Our members, Kiwanians, are service-minded men and women who are united in their commitment and compassion for others.
Any community need can become a Kiwanis service project, especially the needs of children. Kiwanis service projects range from efforts that help local communities to Kiwanis International’s Worldwide Service Project for the elimination of iodine deficiency disorders.
Kiwanis members dedicate more than 6 million volunteer hours and invest more than $100 million in service projects that strengthen communities and serve children every year.
The Today Club program honors clubs that achieve a minimum per-member giving level from active dues-paying members during the Kiwanis administrative year, which runs from October 1 through September 30. Gifts of Today from clubs, individuals and other entities to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund will be counted in determining per-member giving. The per-member giving level for clubs is based on the September 30 membership certified by Kiwanis International.
Six Objects of Kiwanis
To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than the material values of life.
To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
To promote the adoption of 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.
