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.
