Register for the 2020-21 Presidential Conferences
Join Rotary International President Holger Knaack for a presidential conference series focused on opening opportunities for both Rotaract and Rotary members.

Through each of the three conferences, hosted by Rotaract and Rotary members in Brazil, Nigeria, and the United States, attendees will create meaningful connections, inspire collaboration between clubs, and introduce the broader Rotary community to the amazing work of Rotaract.

Get Involved with The Rotary Foundation
Did you know that Rotary International has a foundation? Because of The Rotary Foundation’s generous donors, our members were able to complete more life-changing projects last year than ever before. You can make a difference by helping people in need — from supplying equipment that protects health workers against COVID-19 to training peacebuilders who’ll work toward a future with less conflict. This work is necessary now more than ever, but we need people like you who will take action and help make these projects possible. It all starts with giving a gift to The Rotary Foundation.

Rotaractors, use this opportunity to make progress towards the new Rotaract Giving Certificate. Earn this special certificate when at least five members of your club contribute a minimum total of $50 or more to The Rotary Foundation over the Rotary year.
