Representatives of dozens of local non-profit agencies serving children in and around Providence joined us to celebrate this year's grant awards totaling $114,000 from the Rotary Club of Providence and the Providence Rotary Charities Foundation. It's an annual event that makes our members proud to be part of a great organization. Click Read More for the full list of recipients.
What does it mean when we say Rotarians are People of Action?
It means we are committed volunteers who channel our skills and expertise into taking action to solve problems in our communities and around the world. In Providence, that means Rotarians are taking action to advance childhood literacy and other causes to benefit children. This short video will give you an idea of how Rotarians are taking action to meet critical needs in other parts of the world. 



Founded in 1911, the Rotary Club of Providence is a fellowship and service organization of men and women dedicated to the Rotary motto of Service Above Self. We are one of over 35,000 clubs in more than 150 countries, with over 1.2 million members.

We serve the local community with active support for literacy and other needs related to children.
Our wide-ranging partnership with Providence's Harry Kizirian Elementary School includes placing a small library in each classroom through the generosity of a longtime member, having Rotarians read to students, and a beautification effort with Rotarians adding brightly colored paint along the corridors and creating an imaginative mural based on student drawings in the main lobby.
Proceeds from club fundraising activities support the Providence Rotary Charities Foundation, which distributes grants totaling more than $50,000 each year to the Childhood Literacy Initiative and local agencies serving children.
Our weekly meetings feature interesting speakers and opportunities for members and guests to socialize. Fellowship activities include a bowling league, a book club and parties for almost any occasion.
If you're interested in serving your community and adding enjoyment to your life through the company of like-minded men and women, we're interested in meeting you! Click here to learn how you can become a Providence Rotarian.
