Rotary - Continuing to make a Big Impact in the Voluntary Sector

Published: Jun 25, 2020 @ 1:46 PM

Rotary has been around since 1905, when a small group of men came together with the intention of sharing ideas and different perspectives that would lead to lifelong friendships. Long term friendships were only a small aspect of what has emerged from Rotarian efforts. From all around the world the deep impact of Rotary can be observed. 

Rotary is a household name, and some might even suggest that Rotarians are the original volunteers. Rotary has never been a group to settle for less. The issues they are tackling are robust in scope to say the least. They work towards solving complex problems such as providing clean water, supporting education, and eliminating gender inequality. Working towards the eradication of polio is one of Rotary’s greatest success stories, as they can say that their efforts over the last 30 years have led to 99.9% eradication of the deadly disease. 

Rotary continues to adapt and change to best support our modern, ever shifting, technology driven world. Their priorities have shifted over time and they care deeply about diversity, equality, and inclusion. Rotary knows that to serve their communities best, they must have equal representation of all people among their members and this is something they will continue to strive towards. 

Another way Rotary is continuing to grow and adapt is with technology. In order to provide the best support to their communities and members, Districts 5360 and 5370 are partnering with the VolunteerConnector. To say Rotarians are passionate about volunteerism would be an understatement. These Districts consist of thousands of individuals that are keen to support their communities and they recognize that using the VolunteerConnector is the most efficient way to make these essential connections. 

We are so proud to be partnering with Rotary Districts 5360 and 5370 to connect their members to communities across Western Canada. We know that connecting a Rotarian to a community organization will lead to a lifelong bond, and deep impact for both the organization and the Rotarian. 

Welcome to the VolunteerConnector, Rotarians!
