Our Programs

Rotary’s programs are developing the next generation of leaders, providing funding to make the world a better place, and making peace a priority. And our programs are not just for club members. Learn how you can make a difference in your community through Rotary.

Club Programs

Our Community Service projects involve activities the club undertakes to improve life in our community. While our International Service expands Rotary’s humanitarian reach around
the globe to promote world understanding and peace. Through Matching Grants the Rotary Foundation matches contributions
raised by Rotary clubs and districts for international service projects
involving Rotary clubs or districts in two or more countries. Frequently,
these are World Community Service (WCS) projects.
