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.

About This Charity
Nourish International accomplishes its mission by serving as a platform for students to make a global impact today. The Nourish International Model has three parts:
Student Leadership Development – students gain skills in social enterprise, responsible development, and leadership to create lasting change
Ventures – students run these socially responsible businesses to raise money and help support people, planet and profits
Projects – students and partners (community-led, grassroots NGOs) establish lasting relationships centered around addressing issues related to extreme poverty. Chapters invest the earnings from their ventures and also commit small intern teams for a 6-8 week project alongside the partner organization.
