Dupont Rotary President Maja Galic
Welcome to the online home of the Rotary Club of Dupont Rotary.
What is Rotary? Rotary is an international network that connects 1.2 million Rotarians in 33,000 clubs on 6 continents around the world. Rotary Clubs bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action to make a positive impact in the community both locally and globally. In Rotary, we know that we can do more together than we could ever hope to do alone. It is the principle on which our service is based, and it is true at every level of Rotary.
The Rotary Club of Dupont Circle is a service-oriented organization committed to changing our local and global communities. Filled with leaders from diverse backgrounds and professions, our members take pride in serving others, connecting professionally, giving back via our Foundation, and having fun.
We raise funds and participate in events for foster children in Washington, D.C. through an organization called BEST Kids, participate in Anacostia River clean-ups, work with Friendship Place to help prevent and end homelessness, partner with local schools, and work with Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets and Dupont Circle Circle Citizens Association to raise awareness about local issues.
As global citizens, we contribute to communities abroad as well. In the past years, we collaborated with several other Rotary clubs to raise funding for a bridge project in rural Zimbabwe. Now that the pedestrian bridge is completed, children can access their school without the fear of slipping on wet rocks and drowning in the treacherous river while attempting to cross.
What other initiatives are in our sights? We have plans to do much more, and you can be a part of it. We invite you to join us online and get to know us. We meet every Tuesday through Zoom to interact with guest speakers, socialize and plan our activities. Fellowship and happy hour starts at 6:30 p.m., and our meetings run from 7:00-8:00 p.m.
We're a friendly group, so come by, get to know us, and find out for yourself what makes our club so great. We look forward to serving, leading, or connecting with you.
Yours in Rotary Service,
Rotary Club of Dupont Circle
