Would you like to partner with us on a project?
Our club works on projects locally and internationally. Most involve children, and one of Rotary’s key areas of focus (see left).
We are especially interested in projects that help local kids, that offer hands up rather than hand-outs, and that involve our club members.
We develop relationships with our partners, including follow-up on the results of our combined efforts, ensuring the funds we administer do the most possible good.
