About

Service on the Rocks

Rotary is a volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace. About 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas conduct projects to address today’s challenges – including illiteracy, disease, hunger, poverty, lack of clean water, and environmental concerns – while encouraging high ethical standards in all vocations.

The Rotary Club of Indian Rocks Beach was founded in 1998 by a group of business leaders looking for the opportunity to give back. We work hard to raise funds that allow us to support causes that impact not only our local community but international projects.
