The Providence Rotary Club has dedicated the largest share of its philanthropy to supporting literacy education in Providence's public schools. In collaboration with school and district leaders, we have selected and purchased innovative literacy teaching tools valued at more than $150,000, funded by club members as well as generous corporations and individuals in the community.
The sponsors, donors and attendees to the third Legends for Literacy Gala can take pride in assuring funding for our support for literacy education in the Providence Public Schools next year -- the 2023-24 school year.
At the Gala, we learned some of what's been accomplished with funds raised at the previous two galas....

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 growing literacy partnership with the Providence Public Schools is helping to address one of the city's most critical issues.
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.
