The Rotary Club of Norfolk's nearly 140 members are community leaders living or working in Norfolk, Virginia or nearby cities. Members represent a cross-section of business, nonprofit, education, government and military professions. Our club is affiliated with Rotary International, the world's largest service organization.

Here are a few facts about our club:

  • We meet three times a month onTuesdays for lunch from 12:15-1:30 at the Norfolk Scope where we enjoy fellowship, a good meal and an interesting speaker.
  • Each month we have optional community service, socials or other events that count as club meetings and provide opportunities to help in our community or learn something new. 
  • Our club celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2014 and awarded $100,000 in grants to create Rotary Smiles to buy dentures for low-income citizens, to put computer labs in two Title I Norfolk elementary schools and to support the Calvert Square Boys & Girls Club.
  • In 2015 we started Suds & Buds, a spring party to raise funds each year for our club, the Norfolk Botanical Garden and a third nonprofit that rotates each year. That new event raised $15,000 and plans are underway for the 2016 Suds & Buds party in May.
  • Our club also supports Rotary International projects, such as ending polio and malaria and bringing clean water to communities where it is scarce.
  • In 1992 our club started its own charitable endowment, which is nearly $525,000. The endowment enables us to support a variety of community needs in southeastern Virginia -- helping dozens of nonprofits in recent years.

To learn more please join us for a Tuesday meeting as our guest.
