Why Become A Member?

Rotary is 1.2 million passionate individuals in 35,000+ clubs worldwide. We are both an international organization and a local community leader. Together we lead change in our own backyards and across the world. Our club is made up of a philanthropic community of individuals who share a humanitarian concern for the welfare of all people on earth in a secular, non-political way.

  • Effect change within the Boise community

  • Develop leadership skills while having fun
  • Gain an understanding of and having an impact on local and international humanitarian issues
  • Developing relationships with community and business leaders

Rotary is looking for leaders.

Involvement in our club offers great opportunities for leadership development for yourself and/or the organization you work for. Members are encouraged to participate in or lead one of several committees that are vital to the success and efficient operation of our club.

It’s cool! It’s real life! When I was a young girl my family, grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, cousins, and their children got together for almost every holiday. That’s what our club is like—we sing, we eat, we do good work in the community. We’re there for each other for the whole cycle of life.
