Rotary Fellowships
Find a Rotary Fellowship that’s right for you
Want to make friends around the world, explore a hobby or profession, and enhance your Rotary experience? Join a Rotary Fellowship! Rotary Fellowships are international groups of Rotary members, their family members, program participants, alumni, and even non-members who share a common passion.

Thank you to all who took a few minutes of their time, to offer their treasure to the Columbus Rotary Foundation during The Big Give on June 10-11.  We were able to raise $15,645 of direct donations.  This amount will increase with the record breaking "bonus pool" of $2 Million.  We were one of 1,107 non-profits to benefit from 44,508 donations during the event.  

JUST IN>>>>The bonus pool added .0659% to our Foundation.  The new total is $16,676 

Better Together!

50 for Father

Pete Crozier, Founder

Summer 2019, in honor of my dad, I combined my three memories of him - as a planner and a traveler and a golfer - as I played Fifty for Father, 50 Courses in 50 States in 50 Days.  Many of us know Pete from his work with Junior Achievement of Central Ohio.  This is a different story.
