If you’ve ever wondered what Rotary is all about or what it means to be a Rotarian, this is who we are as a whole.
We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.
Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable. The Rotary Club of Dunedin Waterside is one of many clubs across the globe working to make a positive impact on the world around us.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Our distinct point of view and approach gives us unique advantages:
- We see differently: Our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges in unique ways.
- We think differently: We apply leadership and expertise to social issues—and find unique solutions.
- We act responsibly: Our passion and perseverance create lasting change.
- We make a difference at home and around the world: Our members can be found in your community and across the globe.
HOW DO WE WORK?
Our impact starts with our members—people who work tirelessly to solve some of our community’s toughest challenges. Our efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world. Rotary is led by our members—responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organization’s mission and values in their elected roles.
HOW DID WE GET HERE?
We’ve been making history and bringing our world closer together for over 100 years. Since forming in 1905, we’ve taken on some of the world’s toughest challenges and helped a wide range of international and service organizations—from the UN to Easter Seals—get started. The Rotary Club of Dunedin Waterside was founded in 2009 by a group of individuals eager to make an impact on our coastal community. Since then, we have grown into a thriving club of leaders, doers and dreamers.
HOW DO WE USE OUR FUNDS?
Responsible leadership means more than just doing good work—it means making the most out of every donation we receive.
WHAT CAUSES DO WE SUPPORT?
We work with our local community and international Rotary network to support causes at home and abroad. From fighting to eradicate Polio around the globe to helping the homeless in our own backyard, there is no cause too large or too small for our members to take on.
