Its mission is to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, support of education, and alleviation of poverty. Memberships to the society are gained through donations and dedication to the foundation and the furthering of these worthwhile goals.
The fellowships were awarded to members at an annual dinner held for the installation of new officers, and presented by the foundation chairman Warren Higgins.
