WHY ROTARY?

How Rotary Helps You

Many people these days have no idea what a Rotary club is. We’ve heard everything from “Is that an aviation club” to “Isn’t that just for old people?” Yes, we’ve been around for over 100 years, but not all of our members have. We embrace our Rotarians – men and women, old and young. Some of us are goodie-two-shoes and some of us can be a little mischievous; these personality differences don’t matter because we all have a shared mindset to help the world no matter who we are or where we come from.

IMPACTFUL

Globally we are 1.2 million Rotarians strong. We have incredible partners, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Coca-Cola. This is the best place to be if you want to help the world.

LEADERSHIP GROWTH

Rotarians are fantastic public speakers and leaders. Not because it came naturally, but because they had the opportunities to practice and put their ideas to action.

RELATIONSHIPS

Rotary was borne of a man’s need for companionship. You have the potential to find your best friends, extended family, travel partners and business prospects at each meeting or service project.

YOUR IDEAS, REALIZED

“The power of one, if fearless and focused, is formidable, but the power of many working together is better.” Our clubs are constantly looking for new ideas to make a big impact.

Our Projects

Here are just a few causes our district focuses on.

EDUCATION

We set aside money collected from our Rotarians for annual scholarships on both the district and club level.  We work closely with at-risk youth and adults to teach community readiness so they aren’t left behind. Our support of the Rotary Youth Exchange includes hosting and sending students, and sponsoring their visit expenses. This program has an immeasurable impact on a student’s real-world education. 

LITERACY

Almost every D5400 club funds and delivers dictionaries to elementary school children each year. This is one of the most enjoyable partnerships we have, as the kids are ecstatic to have a book of their very own that also includes vast amounts of information beyond just word definitions. We respect that children are our future and focus many of our service projects on their development and well-being, including the coveted Rotary Youth Leadership Academy.

WATER

We fund clean water initiatives for countries around the world, then set up opportunities for Rotarians to teach citizens how to build and utilize water filtration systems for a self-sustaining long-term solution that also introduces jobs into their communities. 

ENVIRONMENTAL

You will always find our Rotary cogs in parks we’ve built throughout Idaho and Oregon, but we’ve also made an impact on cleaning up communities around the world so their residents have the right to live and grow in a sanitary environment that keeps them healthy.

Our Leaders

Dedicated, kind, fun and motivated to be an inspiration to our world.
