Thank you for your interest in the Rotary Club of Wilmington, but more importantly, welcome to the world of Rotary where your ideas, enthusiasm and energy are welcome!

Rotary International is a membership organization that does community service! With over 1.4 million members worldwide, Rotary is a global network. The Rotary Club of Wilmington is one of over 46,000 clubs whose members are community leaders and problem-solvers working to create positive changes both in their communities and across the globe . 

During this Rotary year, our international theme is “Create Hope in the World.” Rotary International President Gordon McInally wants us look inside ourselves and work with each other to continue to do the type of projects that change lives and create more hope. You can learn more about Rotary International at

Locally, our club has been a leading advocate for Early Childhood Education in Delaware through our leadership and connections within the community. Our Scholarship Fund helps both college-bound and vocational-technical students achieve their educational goals. We are an active participant in many Community Service projects, and also sponsor programming in Wilmington that meets our guiding principles such as the MLK Voice 4 Youth. Together with Rotary International and several other Rotary Clubs worldwide, we recently raised almost $300,000 for projects that will support mothers and children who have been displaced by the war in Ukraine. Lives are being saved and changed for the better as a result. 

These are just a few of the significant ways in which the members of our club live Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self”. 

I joined Rotary because I was invited by a friend and colleague and I have remained a member because of the wonderful people, the excellent service projects, and the quality speakers and programs. Rotary has provided me with personal growth and professional opportunities that I never expected, but for which I am incredibly grateful. 

We HOPE that you will consider joining the Rotary Club of Wilmington to help make a positive difference in our Wilmington community. Our club meets regularly on Thursdays for lunch at the Hotel DuPont at 12 noon, and our meetings always feature an interesting and informative guest speaker. 

If you are interested in joining our club, please contact me at and we will provide you more information and answer any questions you might have about the Rotary experience. 

Thank you once again for your interest in the Rotary Club of Wilmington, where we work every day to create hope in the world!

Yours in Rotary Service,

President  Carrie
