Rotarians make a difference on a global scale, too. Your membership gives you access to a global network of professionals and leaders who share a passion for applying their collective expertise and resources to make a positive change.

Here are some ways we connect with the Rotary world:

Financial support for Rotary International’s End Polio Now campaign, a movement which has just about eradicated the disease

Purchase shelter boxes that provide temporary housing in catastrophic emergency situations 

Donations to 9/11; Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Irma and Kathmandu earthquake relief efforts 


When you join a Rotary club, your potential to make a difference in the world grows exponentially.
