The Beneficiaries

The Rotary Club of Fort Myers has proudly served the community for94 years having been chartered on April 1, 1922. It is the oldest Rotary Club in Southwest Florida and its membership, some 185 members includes many of the area's leading business and professional people. Today, it is a diverse club of men and women from nearly every sector of the community.

It has a rich history of service from its first project in 1922, which was the planting of Royal Palms on McGregor Boulevard, to support of the PACE Center for Girls in the past few years. The Rotary Club of Fort Myers, through its local Trust Fund, distributed over $130,000 for many causes in the most recent fiscal year. The Club played a significant role in relief for Haiti and contributed over $ 20,000 for shelter through Shelter Box* which has become the largest project in Rotary International history.

The Club raises funds parking cars and other events. Newer events include the Italian Fest and Screaming Orphans concert. The newest event to be launched by the Rotary Club of Fort Myers is The Rotary Cup, a charity golf outing on May 7th, 2016. The First Tee of Lee County and the Rotary Fort Myers Trust Fund are the equal beneficiaries of net proceeds from this event.

Rotary International* is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary's main objective is service in the community, in the workplace and throughout the world.

Rotary International has a distinct entity, The Rotary Foundation with a mission to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty. It has operated for over 90 years raising and distributing funds that supports major services. Rotary has a played a key role in the eradication of polio.

Rotarians live by a value system with the four way test of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
