The Rotary Club of Greater Bend 2024

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Greater Bend! Our club was chartered in 1976 by a group of dedicated and resourceful Central Oregon business leaders who saw Rotary as a way to create positive change in our community. With a focus on children, youth, and families, we view ourselves as people of action who embody the motto of Rotary, “Service Above Self.”

Rotary International was founded in 1905 and has grown into the largest service organization in the world with more than 1.4 million members in over 46,000 clubs across 167 countries. The Rotary Club of Greater Bend is a diverse group of men and women who represent all facets of leaders in our local community. We share a common vision to be exceptional stewards to our community, while supporting our members to help enrich their lives. Our club values service, fellowship, and FUN!

At The Rotary Club of Greater Bend, club members regularly participate in hands-on service projects, ranging from supporting local food pantries, helping to clean up the Deschutes River, cooking meals at Ronald McDonald House, building garden beds in elementary schools, and volunteering for our local non-profits to help support their efforts. New this year, we partnered with reVillage to help bring affordable childcare to Bend with the sponsorship of 5 new classrooms and 60 new childcare spots for children ages 0-5, which will be launched in the Fall of 2024.

We meet weekly for lunch at noon on Tuesdays and enjoy gathering with our members and their significant others at a festive happy hour on the last Tuesday of the month. You can find details about the location of our happy hour on our Facebook page, and we hope you will make plans to attend. We also want to invite you to visit a club meeting to get to know our incredible members and hear first-hand how you can make a positive difference in our extraordinary community as a member of the Rotary Club of Greater Bend.
