Who We Are

the Rotary Club of North Colorado Springs to fund projects to benefit our community. Our
Mission is to fulfill Rotary’s objective of “Service Above Self” in the Colorado Springs

Grant scholarships to high school graduates, who would not otherwise be able to attend college. Many of our scholarship recipients have been the first in their family to attend college.
Help to support and fund community programs and activities designated to address children’s literacy, safety and recreation. Rotarian tutors have provided literacy training to Elementary School students and donated thousands of children’s dictionaries to 3rd graders in many of our local elementary schools.
Support various community health, habitat and humanity initiatives, and provide significant funding for charities such as the Ronald McDonald House.
Improve the lives of citizens by delivering food and supplies to shut-in senior citizens, as well as providing support to Silver Key.
Provide an Ethics Awareness training program at our local schools.
Promote and demonstrate patriotism in the community through a joint fund-raiser with the Boy Scout Council of Colorado Springs and our Foundation, placing the American flag in front yards in various neighborhoods in Colorado Springs, on 5 flag holidays each year. This program raises funds for the Boy Scouts as well as for other programs of the North Colorado Springs Rotary Club.
Provide support to families of our service men & women, and to the first responders of our community, through financial support to Angels of America's Fallen. This is an organization that provides such services. Their mission is to encourage and fund healthy positive activities for the children of fallen firefighters, military and law enforcement. Between grief counseling and scholarships others provide, Angels stands beside the children all year, every year until adulthood.

“Man has affinity for his fellowman, regardless of race, creed, or politics, and the greater the variety, the more the zest. All friendliness needs is a sporting chance; it will take care of itself in any company.”
