Giving back to the community since 1967
Over $600,000 donated to community organizations
There is nothing secret about a Rotary Club. It aims to represent all aspects of life in a community, using the experience and connections the members bring to improve conditions, facilities and knowledge for people who can benefit from our support. The motto of Rotary International is ‘Service above Self’. Some of the service is ‘hands-on’ and some is by raising funds that can fund needy causes.
The East Hampton Rotary area includes the Village of East Hampton,and Town of East Hampton, including Montauk, Amagansett, Sag Habor, Wainscott and Bridgehampton.
Our membership continues to grow. There is a rich diversity - a mix of both older and younger members. During our Monday evening meetings we hear from local speakers about issues of importance to our community.
90% of funds raised by the East Hampton Rotary support local charitable organizations, from The Retreat, Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, Southampton Hospital, to scholarships for our students. Various fundraisers are held during the year to support these important charities.
Rotary, in addition to its local efforts, is very active on a national and international level. Whether it’s a tornado in Kansas, an earthquake in California, a sunami in Asia, or a hurricane on the Gulf Coast, Rotary is there to offer assistance.
Therefore, join us to learn more. Rotarians are very welcoming and the organization needs your engagment in order to continue to do its good work for our community and for others who need our help around the world.
