Chartered in 1967, Madison South Rotary is a group of active, friendly professionals who value the Rotary motto “Service Above Self.” While contributing to Rotary International’s world-wide projects, we strongly support Madison area students, organizations, and businesses.
 
As a medium sized club of 70+ members, the Madison South Rotary club spans all ages and occupations with active involvement of all members on our committees and projects. This diversity is the key to our success.  
   
Our annual Fall Brat Stand on Monroe Street across from UW Madison's Camp Randall is our primary fundraiser. Rotarians, their family, and friends volunteer in shifts to help set up, prepare or sell food/drinks at all our home Badger football games. The club then returns much needed financial assistance back to the community using a deliberate, thoughtful grant process each Spring.
 

Our club meets weekly Mondays between 12:15-1:15pm
at the Sheraton Hotel, 706 John Nolen Drive, Madison, WI 53713

Visitors Welcome!
