What is Rotary?
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Right here in Greensboro, there are 650 active members of the eight different Rotary Clubs in our city. Founded in 1917, the Rotary Club of Greensboro is the oldest and largest Club in the area.
Our local service projects include supporting Sumner Elementary School, Angel Flights, Salvation Army Bell Ringing, and our signature project, the Rotary Youth Leadership Program. In celebration of our 100th anniversary, we undertook the the Rotary Club of Greensboro Carousel as a gift to the city. We also support District services projects such as Meals of Hope, Project ReBuild, and Big Sweep.
What are the benefits?
Becoming a Rotary member connects you with a diverse group of professionals who share your drive to give back. Through regular meetings and events, you’ll:
- Discuss your community’s needs and develop creative ways to meet them
- Connect with other leaders who are changing the world
- Expand your leadership and professional skills
- Catch up with good friends and meet new ones
What’s expected of me?
As a club member, you will be asked to:
- Pay club dues and participate in the annual fundraiser
- Be engaged through meeting attendance and/or service projects
- Use your professional skills and talents to make a difference
Am I required to attend club meetings every week?
Attending meetings is an opportunity, not an obligation. It is through your engagement in meetings, networking socials, service opportunities and other activities that you will gain the most value from your membership. Choose how and where to be engaged to serve your needs best. The most important thing is to choose to be engaged. More details about our engagement philosophy can be found here.
What are the membership types and fees?
A full, active membership in the Rotary Club of Greensboro provides access to weekly meals, regular social events, and service opportunities. The quarterly fee of $205 includes all dues and meals and most activities. Additional charitable contributions of $300 to the Rotary Club of Greensboro Foundation and participation in the Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow are expected annually. To fast track earning the Paul Harris Fellow designation, new members contribute $100 per quarter for five quarters, and then the club matches the contribution to earn the Fellow status. Afterward the sustaining Paul Harris Fellow is $25/quarter. The total annual cost after the first year is $1220.
We have multiple membership categories ranging from a basic service membership to a corporate sponsorship program so that you and your business can grow and impact our Community. All membership types are expected to participate in the Paul Harris Fellow designation and the annual charitable contribution as described in previous paragraph.
