The purpose of the Kiwanis International Foundation, of which every Kiwanian is a member, is to provide financial assistance to Kiwanis service programs that agree with and support the objectives of Kiwanis International. The purpose is achieved by making financial grants to Kiwanis International, Kiwanis family-sponsored programs, and to Kiwanis service programs whose scope is beyond the means of individual Kiwanians, Kiwanis clubs, local club foundations, Kiwanis districts, or district foundations. Priority is given to programs involving young children and sponsored by Kiwanis family organizations; capital improvement requests are not considered.

The Kiwnais International Foundation's mission is to serve the children of the world. Kiwanis International Foundation has done far more than that over the years by actually saving lives and by changing the world in so doing. The Foundation raised over 100 million dollars to eradicate Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) around the world. IDD caused physical deformities and severe mental deficiencies translating into the births of millions of individuals who were unable to care for themselves and who then became burdens on society. By succesfully eradicating IDD around the world Kiwanis International Foundation in partnership with UNICEF changed the course of history. Individuals who might have been born in need of society's help were instead born with the ability to provide for themselves and their communites and families.
