Welcome to The Rotary Club of Bradenton

Our motto is Service Above Self, and Rotary members have been doing just that for more than 110 years. Rotarians around the world are united by core values of service, fellowship, diversity, integrity and leadership, and apply these values in their personal, business, and community lives. We are people of action, problem-solvers, opportunity-creators and community builders—and we invite you to come see what we are all about!

Meal Packaging Event

Every year our club partners with the community to do a meal packing to be distributed by the Salvation Army. We take volunteers and spend a morning together having fun and doing good by assembling 50,000 meals or more in a matter a few hours.

Membership

If you enjoy being around other service-oriented people, then inquire about membership. One of the many perks of Rotary is that it is a fellowship of individuals that do good in the community, and we would love to have you be a member of our club.

Comedy Night

Comedy is a great time for a good cause. Each year our club brings in a comedian for your entertainment, and we raise money for a charity in the community. The event is held at Pier 22 in downtown Bradenton, and everyone leaves smiling.

Dictionary Project

Our club members go to various elementary schools in the area to give out dictionaries to all the 3rd graders in those schools. It is rewarding to see the children’s faces as we hand them a book that is truly their own to keep.

Scholarships

Our club sponsors various scholarships for youth in our community. This past year we were able to give out three, $3,000 scholarships to well-deserving individuals who will use the monies to further their education.

Rotary Suncoast Playground Project

Bradenton Rotary Club is part of Rotary’s Suncoast Playground Project, Inc., along with the other six Rotary Clubs of Manatee County. This project is going to be providing an all-inclusive playground with access for all children, including children with special needs, here in our community.
