What is the Rotary?

Rotary International is the world’s largest nonprofit organization, with chapters around the world, and its motto is “Service Above Self.” Along with the Gates Foundation and UNICEF, Rotary International is one of the largest funders of the Polio Plus campaign, which has almost completely eradicated the disease.

By joining a local Rotary chapter, you can visit any Rotary club around the world and you are eligible to engage in Rotary’s national grant process!

The Scarsdale Rotary Club is a local chapter made up of a diverse group of local residents, business owners and professionals who meet weekly for fellowship, to engage in discussions with speakers, and to plan service projects.

We have established The Scarsdale Rotary Foundation, a registered nonprofit, through which we raise and disperse funds, award scholarships and fund service projects throughout the year.

Our Major Projects

Our priorities change over time, as they reflect the priorities of our current active members and the Board. Get involved and get your passion in play! Currently, our main activities include:

  • We host our annual fundraiser event to provide grants for local and international charities selected by our grants committee.
  • We typically fund 15-17 grants to local charities annually!
  • We prepare and deliver a Thanksgiving dinner to shut-ins, in partnership with the Scarsdale/Edgemont Family Counseling Service.
  • We host a December evening holiday party at Children’s Village and provide our adopted House with a large gift.
  • We join many local groups for Days of Service – invite us and some will come!
  • We award scholarships to graduating seniors from Scarsdale High School who have demonstrated a superior commitment to service.
  • We sponsor a leadership training retreat for High School students:
  • We host speakers at our luncheons each week who tell us about their good works, and who motivate and inspire us to be global citizens.
    • Speakers present a 10-15 minute presentation on a topic of interest (ranging from good deeds, health programs, media and sports trends, musical and poetry performances, etc – the possibilities are endless and include anything of interest to our members); and
  • We hold occasional Open Houses -- Wine and Cheese evening events where we meet and greet prospective members at Value Electronics on Popham Road.

When We Meet

We meet weekly on Tuesdays at Moscato in Scarsdale, from noon to 1:15 PM. We also have occasional evening meetings -- open houses for prospective new members to meet the Scarsdale team. Members are not required to attend the luncheon every week, but we ask that you make an effort to attend as often as possible.  Starting September26th, we'll meet once a month for dinner at Chat's Restaurant (the last Thursday of the month) at 6:30pm for cocktails and dinner at 7:00pm.

The Fine Print

  • The cost of the weekly luncheon meeting at Moscato is $22.
  • Annual dues (paid through two installments) are a total of $400. This includes a tax-deductible donation towards Rotary International’s End Polio Now Campaign and also supports many of our local outreach programs and administrative expenses (insurances, etc.). 
    • We offer a 50% dues reduction for members of the clergy and members under 40 years old.  
  • All Scarsdale Rotary members are volunteers – we do not pay any salaries! The money we raise through dues and fundraisers is used to do good in local and global communities.
