What we believe - The Jaycee Creed

​by C. William Brownfield

We Believe… That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;

That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;

That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;

That government should be of laws rather than of men;

That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality;

And that service to humanity is the best work of life.

What we do

The Cedar Rapids Jaycees serve the community through projects and fundraisers. The proceeds we receive from these events, are donated back to other organizations within our community. It is through these projects that our members learn new leadership skills and how to collectively work together to achieve something bigger than ourselves.

Some of our well known events include Toys for Tots, Uptown Friday Nights, Festival of Trees, Local Emergency Officials BBQ, Trunk of Treat and scholarship program.
