Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 34,000 Rotary clubs located in 167 countries.
The Rotary Club of Pensacola, the "Downtown" Club, was organized March 9, 1915, with 54 charter members and was the second Rotary Club in Florida. Today, the club has over 200 members.
The club actively supports worthwhile causes both here on the Gulf Coast and around the world. Here at home, we support the foundations of the University of West Florida and Pensacola State College, support local education and reading programs, and support the community in a variety of ways. Our members also volunteer in communities abroad to support education, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.
After 100 years of service above self, the Rotary Club of Pensacola is more vital than ever.
