Foundation of the Rotary Club of Lansing

Rotary is an international membership organization made up of people who share a passion for and commitment to enhancing communities and improving lives across the world.  Rotary clubs exist in almost every country.  Our members change lives locally and connect with other clubs to work on local and international projects that address today's most pressing challenges.  Being a member is an opportunity to take action and make a difference, and it brings personal rewards and lifelong friendships in the process.

The Lansing Rotary Club of Michigan reflects a membership of over 200 outstanding and compassionate civic leaders who enjoy the fun of fellowship and opportunities to collectively make an impact on the Lansing community and the world.  Members represent a cross-section of our business and professional community dedicated to a higher stander - Service Above Self.

To reflect the goals of making an impact, the Rotary Club of Lansing Foundation has established an enduring source of revenue where Lansing Rotarians honor the club's creed of "service above self" by supporting charitable endeavors of importance with positive impact on our city, our nation and our world.
