What is Rotary Local?
The Rincon Rotary Club, through the Rotary Local Program, is dedicated to helping teachers in our local area educate their students.  We do this through direct financial assistance when necessary, but in many cases, our network of business partners may be able to provide the necessary resources to help you achieve your project goals. 
 
In either case, we believe that you can identify your educational needs better than we can.  Be creative, and tell us how we can help you build a stronger community through education. But first, take a few minutes and read our guidelines listed below to help you get started.
 
We firmly believe that together we can build a better community. Thank you for applying, and good luck with your project.

To support all the wonderful programs funded by the Rotary International Foundation, the Board agreed to match every $100 a member donates to the RI Annual Fund or Polio Plus with $50 through the end of the fiscal year.  This is a wonderful opportunity to build up your points toward your Paul Harris Fellow (a minimum of $1000). 
 
Personal checks should be made payable to the "RI Foundation" and given to Wendy.  Or, you can ask Anne to bill you. If you'd like to know where you stand on your overall donations, contact Wendy or Anne.

Holding a Silent Auction at the "Taste of Chocolate"

 

 

 

The Rincon Rotary club is a fun, friendly group of men and women focused on  "doing good" for others.  Since 1968, we have served our community by supporting various youth programs, assisting the elderly, offering basic living essentials, and providing to those in need of food.

In addition, we have purchased essential medical supplies in Turkey, Mexico, and Africa.  We funded  teachers in Afghanistan and saved the life of Baby Fanny, born in Honduras with a hole in her heart. 

Our work in serving others will always be our passion!

We would love to welcome you into our club.  For information, please contact our Membership Chair.

 

 

 

The Vision of the Rotary Club of Rincon (Tucson)
is to be recognized by the community for our efforts to promote scholarship and citizenship as a friend of education; to direct and manage programs that involve youth, adults, families, seniors and those with disabilities; to provide assistance in skills training and on-the-job experience working with the Pima County JTED; and to involve all of our members in one or more of our variety of projects while striving to meet the Rotary International motto of

Service above Self

Rotary AIDS day event turns spotlight on world’s deadliest infectious disease
The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the worst ever, has claimed several thousand lives and generated worldwide concern. But its impact pales in comparison to that of AIDS, which, despite advances in treatment, still kills more than a million people a year, the majority of them in Africa. "Even with the Ebola outbreak at its worst expected levels, it's never going to reach what we've seen with the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Dr. Timothy B. Erickson, director of the Center for Global Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, speaking at Rotary's World AIDS Day event in Evanston on 1...
Indoor air pollution linked to millions of deaths
After decades dreaming about the Himalayas, Rotary member George Basch went on his first trek through the mountains in 2001, when he was 64. A member of the Rotary Club of Taos-Melagro in New Mexico, USA, Basch found that the experience was even more than he had hoped. "My expectations were high, and dramatically exceeded," he remembers. But a less-than-pleasant aspect of the experience was the indoor smoke pollution he encountered in the guest houses and private homes he visited. Many families in the Himalayas use rudimentary cookstoves or, in some cases, an open fire pit inside the home to...
Rotary staff members bond over Miles to End Polio bike ride
For six staff members from Rotary headquarters in Evanston, the fight to eradicate polio has become personal. Together, they biked the physically grueling 104-mile (167-kilometer) Tour de Tucson in Arizona, USA, collectively raising more than $20,000 for polio eradication while putting their bodies and minds through a feat of endurance. For the tightknit group, the experience was about more than just raising money and crossing the finish line. It was about learning about each other and what Rotary members are doing to rid the world of this crippling disease. They advocated together, trained...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
Business camps prepare students to become entrepreneurs
Before college, business school, or their first jobs, more than 2,000 U.S. high school students are learning what it takes to become tomorrow's brightest business leaders. Each year, nearly 25 Rotary clubs and districts conduct three-day educational retreats in a program known as Camp Enterprise. At each retreat, seasoned business professionals and entrepreneurs teach 100 or so area high school juniors how to develop, launch, and operate a successful business in a free enterprise economic system. The intensive weekend camps, funded entirely by the clubs and offered at no cost to participants...
