Rotary Club of Columbus

We Are People of Action – Come Join the Fun

Rotary is a worldwide network of 1.4 million people of action who tackle the most persistent problems in our communities, while building professional and leadership skills through meaningful connections.

From supporting Columbus City School children with programs to build self-esteem to building an orphanage in Africa for children of parents who died of AIDS, we are always in motion looking for ways we can make a difference in the lives of others.

Columbus Rotary is one of the oldest and largest Rotary Clubs in the world, founded in 1912. Rotary is a community of business professionals and community leaders from all continents, cultures, careers, and experiences who connect through our local clubs.
