The worldwide mission of Civitan International is to build good citizenship by providing a volunteer organization of clubs dedicated to serving individual and community needs, with an emphasis on helping people with developmental disabilities.

Who does your organization benefit/serve?

Primarily, our focus is serving people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD). Local Civitan clubs are not limited to I/DD service and often support other organizations, food banks, veterans, seniors and others with projects. We encourage members to seek opportunities to meet needs in their own communities and build relationships with partnering organizations.

What makes your organization unique?

We are the only major service organization dedicated to I/DD research and the only major service organization based in the South.

Civitan was the first to break the racial barrier in the 1940s and the first to accept women as full members. Civitan created a worldclass research center which is a leader in the field of Rett Syndrome, Autism and other I/DD research.

Tell us why your organization deserves to win Uptick’s Marketing Magic City Makeover Competition!

We deserve a makeover because we have worked so hard to get the pieces in place and we have so much impact around the world. We could accomplish so much with your insight and direction. We’re focused on service to others and, with your help, we could allocate our assets to meet the needs of more people locally and worldwide. Help us create the next generation of community leaders.
