Rotary: Service Above Self
Building Communities and Having Fun Doing It...
Supporting Local and Broader Communities.
We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.
Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Our distinct point of view and approach gives us unique advantages:
- We see differently: Our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges in unique ways.
- We think differently: We apply leadership and expertise to social issues—and find unique solutions.
- We act responsibly: Our passion and perseverance create lasting change.
- We make a difference at home and around the world: Our members can be found in your community and across the globe.
HOW DO WE WORK?
Our impact starts with our members—people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities’ toughest challenges. Their efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world. Rotary is led by our members—responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organization’s mission and values in their elected roles.
HOW DID WE GET HERE?
We’ve been making history and bringing our world closer together for over 100 years. Since forming in 1905, we’ve taken on some of the world’s toughest challenges and helped a wide range of international and service organizations—from the UN to Easter Seals—get started.
HOW DO WE USE OUR FUNDS?
Responsible leadership means more than just doing good work—it means making the most out of every donation we receive.
About Our Club (Whidbey-Westside)
Whidbey Westside is a Rotary Club on located on South Whidbey island. We are a group of local community members who seek to make a positive impact on our local and broader communities through service and fellowship. We are active in supporting those individuals and organizations that strive to improve the community here on South Whidbey. By serving the community and making sure that we have fun doing it, we are able to continue to leverage the global influence of the Rotary Organization here on Whidbey Island and abroad. Our activities include service projects like cleaning up our stretch of highway north of Freeland, Vocational After-Hours Events that allow us to visit our members’ places of business and learn more about what they do professionally, and social events, like our regular Seahawks Monday Night Football Tailgating Parties held at Wifire in Freeland.
