Our 2016 inaugural D.C. Duck Race provided more than $25,000 in funds
to organizations that enhance the health, education and welfare of children!
The D.C. Rotary Club:
• Hosts career fairs for D.C. high school students
• Provides dictionaries to D.C. public and charter school 3rd graders
• Feeds the homeless every month in the nationʼs capital
• Manages an endowment for a regional youth organization
• Supports international projects through matching grants.
The Rotary Club of Washington, D.C. is very active in the local community. Funds
also support international projects to fund education programs, clean water
projects, critical medical aid and wellness, particularly concerning children through
small business development. The Duck Race and related activities will account for a
signicant amount of our funding in 2017.
The D.C. Rotary joins Rotary Clubs throughout the world, which have dedicated
resources towards making our planet Polio-free through Rotary Internationalʼs
signature cause, Polio Plus, supported with more than $100 million by the Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation.
