Need assistance with a project or aspiration?
We’re always on the lookout for individuals and groups who may be in a position to leverage our skills and resources. If you’re unsure of your eligibility, or have any questions, send an email to our Service Chair at ServiceChair@DowntownRotarySpringfieldMO.org.
Downtown Rotary Members regularly look for ways to contribute meaningfully to our community, both locally and internationally. We’ve helped bring mobile food pantries to Ozarks Food Harvest and every year the proceeds from our Rock n’ Ribs fundraiser are divided among many worth charities such as Good Samaritan Boys Ranch. We also develop projects to serve communities around the globe. Past international efforts have included helping to provide clean drinking water, eradicating polio and helping the Rotary Clubs in one of Springfield MO’s sister cities Tlaquepaque, Mexico.
Help in fund raising is always appreciated. Let us know of your interests and we’ll see how we can work together for maximum benefits!*
Downtown Rotary supports the development of future leaders. We’re proud to provide scholarships to deserving area college students, provide mentoring in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks for students attending Middle College at Ozarks Technical Community College and supporting Weaver Elementary by providing books, T-shirts and other supplies.
We also sponsor visiting international exchange students and sponsor local students’ attendance at Rotary Youth Leadership conferences.
If members of your group would like to join us in providing some added encouragement and stability to these students, you will be most welcome. See below*
We don’t just write checks. We’re not afraid to jump in and get our hands dirty. Many members of our club have provided numerous man hours working our booth at our annual Rock n Ribs fundraiser, performing service projects at the teen homeless shelter Rare Breed and grabbing a paint brush to improve the classrooms, the playground and the learning environment at Weaver Elementary.
There’s strength in numbers, so if your group would like to join in and help us expand our service efforts, please let us know.*
*If you would like to be involved with or contribute to efforts like these, get in touch with us or join us for lunch on Tuesdays at Noon at Kentwood Hall.
