KIWANIS CLUB OF BRANTFORD
APPLICATION GUIDLELINES FOR DONATION REQUESTS

 

Purpose

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child
and one community at a time. The objects of Kiwanis International are:

  • 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 makes possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism
    and goodwill.

Annually, the Kiwanis Club of Brantford supports the Kiwanis Foundation of Canada to
assist children outside of our community. It is also a goal of the Kiwanis Club of
Brantford to continue to support various charitable causes locally in Brantford and Brant
County.

Primary emphasis is placed on applications that demonstrate benefits to children in
Brantford and Brant County and reflect the objects of Kiwanis.
