We Are Columbus Rotary - Welcome


Our traditional MONDAY MEETINGS are now hosted through Zoom and live streamed on our Facebook Page.  Join us each week at 12:00 PM.
  
Contact the office for participant information. 

We are family, friends and neighbors, community and business leaders, young and seasoned professionals and retirees who meet weekly for dynamic programs and networking while supporting numerous service projects in our community and world.  

We build friendships while working on those service projects that improve the lives of others.

From supporting Columbus City School children with programs to build self-esteem to building an orphanage in Africa for children of parents who died of AIDS, we are always in motion looking for ways we can make a difference in the lives of others.

We are united by the motto "Service Above Self" and live by an ethical creed known as the Four Way Test: Is it the truth, is it fair to all concerned, does it build goodwill and better friendships, will it be beneficial to all concerned. If this rings true for you, we want you to join us.

We Are People of Action - Come Join the Fun

Rotarians are People of Action, driven by a desire to create opportunities, strengthen communities, and find solutions to the tough challenges that affect people around the world.

Rotary clubs tackle projects of every scale and inspire fellow Rotarians, friends, neighbors, and partners to share their vision, exchange ideas for lasting solutions, and take action to bring those ideas to life.

Learn How Good It Feels to Help Others and Have Fun with Friends Doing It

We Solve Problems - Come Help Us

Every day, in Columbus and around the world, our neighbors face tough challenges — conflict, disease, and lack of clean water, health care, education, and economic opportunity. 

Members of the Columbus Rotary and Rotarians around the world have a vision of what’s possible for their neighbors. They mobilize other leaders and experts to take action and see it through. 

We have fun working with our members—partners, neighbors, and friends—doing so many good works:

  • We support education, expanding access to education and empowering educators to inspire more children and adults to learn. Columbus Rotary has funded over $1 million in scholarships over the last decade so youth can imagine and realize their full potential and live their dreams. 
  • We help local economies grow, creating opportunities for individuals and communities to thrive financially and socially
  • We help provide clean water, building local solutions to bring clean water and sanitation services to more people every day
  • We save mothers and children, expanding access to quality care, so mothers and children can live and grow stronger
  • We promote peace, encouraging dialogue to foster understanding within and across cultures
  • We help fight disease, educating and equipping communities to stop the spread of life-threatening or preventable diseases
  • We are eradicating polio, uniting the world to end polio, once and for all
Columbus Rotary is one of the oldest and largest Rotary Clubs in the world, founded in 1912 and almost 300 members strong. Rotary is a community of 1.2 million men and women from all continents, cultures, professions, and experiences who connect through our local clubs, like Columbus Rotary. 

We Want You To Join Us!

Learn more about what our club does and join us for lunch on Monday to learn more about the wide reach of Columbus Rotarians in action.  Give us a call at 614-221-3127 or Contact Us.  We would like to meet you.
