What Is Rotary?

Rotary is a volunteer organization with 33,000 clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. It initiates humanitarian projects that address today’s challenges affecting the world today, such as hunger, poverty, and illiteracy.

Rotary club members represent a cross-section of business and professional leaders around the world. These 1.2 million men and women donate their expertise, time, and funds to support local and international projects that help people in need and promote understanding among cultures. Rotary International is the worldwide association of Rotary clubs united under a motto of Service Above Self.

UPDATE on Hurricane Relief

The response to our request for assistance for the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Rockport Texas has been overwhelming.  To date we have collected over $13,000 which when combined with our District match totals $17,000. We will be forwarding those funds to the Rotary Club of Rockport this week.    In the meantime, many have asked about how to help the many communities that have been affected by natural disasters in Florida, Puerto Rico,  and Mexico.  Rotary International has established four donor designated funds to provide targeted assistance to communities impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, earthquakes in Mexico .  If anybody wishes to donate to any of these specific areas, they may do so by using this link: https://www.rotary.org/en/rotary-helps-disaster-victims and indicate which fund they wish their donation directed.  

Thanks so much.
