The Rotary Club of Tampa was chartered by the Rotary Club of Jacksonville in 1914 as the second Rotary Club in Florida and the 117th Rotary club worldwide. Our organization is woven into the fabric of the city, led by civic and business leaders with a heart for service above self. With 160 members of all ages, professions, and demographics, we represent a cross section of the community seeking to make a difference with hands on service, philanthropic giving, and leadership both locally and internationally. Our members support one another in business and build friendships that last a lifetime.
The Rotary Club of Tampa Foundation provides financial support for the Club’s local and international projects and charities. Its carefully managed portfolio and mindful grant process ensure our ongoing impact with the many meaningful organizations with whom we partner each year.
Rotary International has over 1.2 million members and 35,000+ clubs worldwide. Causes include fighting disease, supporting education, growing local economies, and promoting peace. International projects planned and executed with the partnerships of clubs across the globe build multinational friendships and mean local members can see their impact firsthand.
