Rotary is made up of three parts: at the heart of Rotary are the clubs like ours, that are supported by Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation. Through the collaboration of these three entities, we support local and international causes.
Our club brings together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action.
Rotary International supports ours and other clubs worldwide by coordinating global programs, campaigns, and initiatives.
The Rotary Foundation uses generous donations to fund projects by Rotarians and our partners in communities around the world. As a nonprofit, all of the Foundation’s funding comes from voluntary contributions made by Rotarians and friends who share our vision of a better world.
These are the charities the Rotary Club of North Raleigh supports directly.

B&GH and Rotary
In 1966, 16 boys moved into the brand new Rotary cottage, which was generously funded by Rotarians across the state. With the capacity now at 9, the residents are able to build closer, family-like relationships with staff.
Each year, hundreds of Rotarians visit campus on “Rotary Day” – traditionally held on the Sunday following Super Bowl Sunday. They attend a morning worship service with all B&GH residents, followed by lunch in the Fellowship and dessert in the Rotary Cottage.
