Interested in joining the North Haven Rotary Club? Here are 4 reasons why you should:

1) Give Back to the Community

The North Haven Rotary is active throughout the greater New Haven area in numerous charitable causes. We host community dinners and assist local vets. We organize the annual North Haven High School Project Graduation, giving seniors a fun, safe option for graduation celebrations. And we donate our time and money to a litany of causes, including the North Haven Education Foundation, NHTV, Special Olympics CT, Fix & Feed North Haven, Camp Rising Sun, Vets 4 Vets, the Community Soup Kitchen, the Ronald McDonald House, the North Haven Garden Club, and the NHHS girls rugby team. At our most recent community recognition luncheon we handed out about $40,000 in grants to local groups and organizations.

2) Meet Local Business Professionals

Our club is comprised of a diverse variety of business professionals from the area. Among our members are lawyers, CPAs, business owners, mortgage brokers, print professionals, actors, photographers, landlords, car salesmen, insurance professionals, financial advisors, jewelers, nonprofit employees, bankers, pharmaceutical professionals, florists, professors, comptrollers, and someone who writes about alcohol for a living. In terms of age, our club ranges from Millennials to members with a bit of grey up top. The North Haven Rotary allows you to expand your professional network while also giving back to the community in a meaningful way.

3) Get Involved Locally

Rotary is about more than just the time and money we donate to the local communities. Anyone can write a check for a charity — we get involved and stay involved. Take pleasure in knowing that you are part of the positive force in your community, helping those in need, reliably so, year after year.

4) Have Fun!

For all that we give back to the community, we also take time to enjoy each other’s company. North Haven Rotarians are a very social bunch, enjoying fellowship events and nights out at local establishments. Do you like wine, bourbon, banter, fun, or fine dining? You’ll fit right in. 
We are a nonpolitical group that counts members on both aisle. Rotary is not about politics. Rotary is about community service and enjoying good times.

So Are You Interested?

If so, fantastic! The next step is to contact Membership Chair LuAnn Buono and express your interest (by clicking on her name).
Every year our club awards grants to local organizations in need of funds. In 2017 we donated around $40,000 to 30+ charities, community service groups and other organizations.

We seek to fund projects and purposes that can have the greatest positive impact on the community. Grants are not typically made for endowments, scholarships, operating expenses, deficit financing or reimbursement for items previously purchased. We encourage requests for seed money for new community projects — preference goes towards needs that are not already met by other organizations.

The deadline to apply for a grant is April 30, 2018.
