5190 Rotarians - People of Action!

The Rotary Club of International Exchange was chartered September 6th, 2022. On May 13th, club members and Rotary dignitaries gathered to celebrate the charter. 

The Rotary Club of International Exchange is a cause-based club that focuses on the Rotary Youth Exchange. Club members include returned RYE students and others with a passion for the Rotary Youth Exchange. The current club president is Phoebe Stears-Macauley, who is a past exchange student to Thailand. 

The charter party was held at the home of RI Board Member Vicki Puliz and her husband Tim. Among the attendees were DG Jeff Gabriel, DGE Stacy Graham and many others. 

DG Jeff officially inducted the current club members and then Phoebe inducted two new members, including one Zooming in from Italy. Closing the ceremony was DGE Stacy Graham, who presented President Phoebe with a Paul Harris Fellow.

Our Rotary Priorities

Rotary is dedicated to causes that build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.

More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.

Nearly 6 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation. We expand access to quality care, so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger.

Rotary encourages conversations to foster understanding within and across cultures. We train adults and young leaders to prevent and mediate conflict and help refugees who have fled dangerous areas.

We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases like polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. We improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in developing areas.

We support local solutions to bring clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to more people every day. We don’t just build wells and walk away. We share our expertise with community leaders and educators to make sure our projects succeed long-term.

We carry out service projects that enhance economic and community development and create opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old. We also strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.

Rotary’s newest area of focus is the environment which will enable Rotarians and Rotary Clubs to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.

The District Grants Steering Committee has announced changes in District Grants for the next Rotary year.
District Grant Funds for club projects will continue to match club funds on a 1-to-1 basis up to $2500. The club may plan to expend more than $2500 for the project, but there is a maximum of $2500 in District Grant Funds.
District Grant Funds for multi-Club projects will be increased to match each club’s funds on a one to one-and-a-third (1 to 1 1/3) basis up to $3325, to encourage clubs to work together on projects. For example, if 2 clubs work together on a project and each contribute $2500, a maximum of $3325 will be available for each club, for a total of $6650. An example of a 2-club project where each club donates $2500 results in:
  • Club A Contribution    $2500
  • Club B Contribution    $2500
  • Club A District Match  $3325
  • Club B District Match  $3325
  • Total Project Funding $11650
Bonus District Grant Funds will be available to clubs which qualify for the Every Rotarian Every Year Banner in the 2022-23 Rotary year.
  • A 30% bonus up to $750 will be made available for single-club projects.
  • A 30% bonus up to $1000 will be made available for multi-club projects.
  • Bonus Funds will also be available for projects when club funds are not being used at a maximum of $750 for single club projects and $1000 for multi-club projects.
  • To qualify, for the Every Rotarian Every Year Banner, every Rotarian who was a member of the Club on July 1 must contribute a minimum of $25 to the Annual Fund, with an average gift for the club of $100. (Members who joined the club during the current year are not counted.)
  • Bonus District Grant Funds must be requested by October 31, 2023.
Clubs are encouraged to earn the Every Rotarian Every Year Banner between now and June 30th in order to qualify for Bonus Funds next year!

Our District created the District 5190 Community Fund (DCF), a 501c3 Foundation, several years ago. It was established to provide financial resources for club and district needs and to support the charitable needs of Clubs that do not have a Foundation of their own.
Recently, the DCF has been very active in supporting people that have been impacted by fires within our District.  This has been possible because of many donations from our Clubs, other Districts and individual Rotarians.  It is great that people and clubs have stepped up to make this possible. Thank You for your support!!

No more annoying pull down menus that have little or no description to where you're going. Check out the new page and give us feedback and any thoughts you might have on how we can improve. 
On October 18, 2021, the Rotary Club of Greenville held their first fundraising/community event since the Dixie Fire destroyed the town of Greenville on August 4, 2021.  Two Rotarians, one prospective member, and two appreciated volunteers worked in the first snow of the year and temperatures to chill the bone.  This year's drive through clinic was moved from Greenville to Crescent Mills due to the fire damage.
