Mission Statement

Make Dreams Real. Rotary's statement changes each year.

Description

Rotary International is known worldwide for its humanitarian efforts. Rotary is particularly known for its mission to eradicate polio from the world. Rotary also serves humanity with fresh water and building projects along with countless other volunteer projects.

Locally, Victoria Rotary Club works in the community in various ways. The major benefactor each year is the local Boys and Girls Club. Jointly, Rotary and the Boys and Girls club hold an annual charity sporting clay shoot and share the proceeds equally. The Boys and Girls Club uses its share for operation of the facility and its programs throughout the year. Rotary's portion is used to fund scholarships and other programs. A 4-Way Test speech contest is held each year in which high school students participate. The winners receive scholarships. Other ambassadorial scholarships are available via an application process. The Victoria Rotary Foundation receives and reviews several grant requests each year and makes monetary donations based on eligibility and need.

Other programs include Shots Across Texas, Adoption Awareness Picnic and The Knowledge Bowl. Shots Across Texas provides free immunizations to children at the beginning of each school year. The Adoption Awareness Picnic is a opportunity for prospective adoptive parents to interact with children available for adoption. The Knowledge Bowl is a contest which raises funds for the Victoria Adult Literacy Council.
