Serving children around the world so that future generations will thrive.

Our Mission

The motto of Kiwanis International is, ``Serving the children of the world.`` The Kiwanis Club of Monterey sees this as its mission. We serve the children of Monterey and surrounding areas by working to make our community a better place for families through a wide range of volunteer activities. We raise money through multiple fundraising efforts that we use to support Key Clubs in local high schools, scout groups, and other youth-serving organizations, and every year we award a generous four-year college scholarship to a deserving local student. For nearly 100 years, the Kiwanis Club of Monterey has been making a real difference!

The Objectives of Kiwanis International

  • 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.

Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, help their communities in countless ways. Each communities’s needs are different so each Kiwanis club is different. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed, and thrive, great things happen.
