Rotary options in Fort Collins

"While Rotary clubs are grounded in the same values, no two are the same, because each community has its own unique needs. At club meetings in communities across the globe, our members come together to strengthen their connections to friends and neighbors and their commitment to improving lives." Rotary International  Clubs may have different meeting times, financial commitments, membership size, formality and service focus areas. We encourage you to attend multiple meetings to find out the right membership fit for you in Rotary.

    • Description: The Rotary Club of Fort Collins, After Work is known as “the little club that does.”  We are small enough to respond immediately to local or international humanitarian and/or environmental projects brought forth by any of our members at any time.  Personal connections and proven experience make us efficient in our decision making and completion rate.  We are a major force in both local and international projects, currently involved in 3 Global Grants and 7 District Grants as well as multi-club projects and direct club support for nutrition, education and youth leadership training. We raise funds through member driven and fun events such as Black Tie Bingo, a Holiday Gift Basket Auction and a Virtual Cruise Ship event visiting Ports of Call where are projects are located. Starting 2021, dues were only $90 per quarter, which includes a voluntary $25 per quarter contribution to the Rotary Foundation.  We have never charged a “meal fee.”   Members may order off the menu or not. Our motto is “Having Fun While Helping Humanity."  We do both.  Visit us on Facebook, Contact Us
  • Rotary Passport Club of District 5440

    • Description: Rotary Passport Clubs are designed to be flexible, affordable and accessible to people who want to be Rotarians but find that traditional Rotary clubs aren't the best fit for them at this time. One of the unique elements of a Passport club is that there are fewer in-person meetings. The Passport Club will meet remotely once or twice per month instead of weekly meetings.  And, our members will have a "passport" to visit other Rotary clubs around the world, participate in community service projects throughout the district and help implement District and Global Grant Projects that interest them.
