Welcome to Our Club

The Rotary Club of Wilmette offers help and support to all communities locally and internationally wherever and whenever there is need in the human family.


The Rotary Club of Wilmette was chartered in 1924 with 21 members. Today there are over 59 active members who gather to do good for others while enjoying good fellowship.

Our Club members enthusiastically live the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” both locally and internationally. Recent projects include water well installation at schools in Angola, the collection and delivery of over 20,000 books annually to inner city schools in Chicago, food packing and providing necessities to the homeless in Chicago, supplying ultrasound equipment and related training to people in Uganda, resettlement assistance to legal refugees in the Chicago area, providing disaster relief supplies to hurricane, typhoon, and other natural disaster survivors, food packing for people in Guatemala and Central America, and supporting local food pantries and literacy efforts.
