A number of members have asked about a sustaining member program that would help to support the Club.  With this in mind the Club Board approved an initiative to answer these questions. 

The Rock of Gibraltar has stood through time as a bastion of support and defense.  Like Gibraltar, Columbus Rotary’s 1912 Society has been created for the same purpose; to support our century old organization.  A $250 (non-deductible) contribution to Columbus Rotary will assist in sustaining our Club operations and offices.  Your donation will be recognized with a Flag of Gibraltar lapel pin.  

For questions or additional information, please contact Executive Director Scott Brown.
