Does it love you back?

Does it love you back?

It is very possible to love something like Rotary, even though it isn't perfect. Anytime there is growth and evolution it isn't always pretty or smooth-- but it's worth it.

An event so epic it draws people from all over the world... and it's put on by a few Rotary clubs in a small town. Oh, and you too can volunteer as a Rotarian and be right next to the action

The shirt off your back

After giving aid to the US during their time in your country, you flee danger with you family to the US and end up in Phoenix, Arizona. Now what? You don't speak the language and they don't speak yours. How do you get a job, or housing, or know what paperwork to complete? We've got some resources.

They say, "Teach a man to fish..." How can you as a Rotarian in 5495 teach someone to fish? It's actually pretty easy and you will change someone's life and possibly the lives of their whole family.

How to turn $10 into $630,000

How to turn $10 into $630,000

If every Rotarian in District 5495 participated in Rotary Direct and donated $10 a month to the Rotary Foundation, our District would have $630,000 a year to use for District Grants and even more for Global Grants. Imagine how much lasting change you could make off of just $10 a month.
