We are a group of citizens who are dedicated to serving the local community through various service and fundraising projects. We want children to thrive, learn, grow, succeed, and play curiously. The Westlake Kiwanis Club is a 501(c)3 tax deductible organization and all of the money is used to support the children in the community and all the service projects.
The primary purpose of this club is to improve the quality of life for children and families
worldwide by adhering to the Objects of Kiwanis International, which 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 application of higher social, business, and professional
To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable
To provide, through this club, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render
altruistic service, and to build a better community.
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 is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.
Kiwanis will be a positive influence in communities worldwide — so that one day, all children will wake up in communities that believe in them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive, play and learn.
