Would you like to be a Providence Rotarian?
If you’d like to do good in our community and the world, in the company of people you like, there are lots of ways you can join the Rotary Club of Providence…
The Providence Rotary Club is always welcoming individuals who share our core value of Service Above Self. Recognizing that people’s schedules and commitments take many forms today, our club has created several ways to get acquainted with, and possibly join us:
All women and men who live or work in Providence and surrounding communities are eligible to apply for club membership. Once approved, you will become part of a worldwide fellowship of 1.2 million people, and a local club with a 110+ year history of service in the Providence community.
Spouses, partners, children and other members of the same household can join the club as a family at a reduced annual dues rate. Each family member has all the privileges of Rotary membership.
Employers in the Greater Providence area can sponsor as many as three employees to become members of the Rotary Club of Providence. Corporate Membership allows your employees to share in the opportunities for community service, networking, personal growth and fellowship offered by participation in Rotary. As an employer, having your people take part in Rotary can satisfy their desire to give back, help grow their interpersonal and leadership skills and give your organization a broader presence in the community.
Some organizations pay all costs for their Rotarian employees, others ask employees to pay all or part. While that is your option, many companies have found it worthwhile to support their employees in Rotary year after year.
Individuals who support the mission and values of Rotary but cannot commit to membership at this time are invited to become Friends of Providence Rotary (FOPR). Friends may attend weekly meetings, serve on committees and participate in club service projects.
The FOPR designation is offered by invitation only to
  • Former active Rotarians
  • Men and women who have assisted the club in the past or expressed a desire to do so
  • Spouses or partners of current or deceased members
  • Individuals who would like to get acquainted with the club with hopes of joining later
Why have so many men and women become members of the Rotary Club of Providence?
Ask around at one of our meetings and you'll hear reasons like:
  • Opportunity to meet congenial people
  • Belief in the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self"
  • Opportunity to create and/or take part in worthwhile community service activities
  • Develop a network of mutual personal and professional support
  • Enjoy year-round fellowship activities
