Boise Centennial Rotary Club

Rotary International’s mission is to provide service to others, promote high ethical standards, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. Boise Centennial Rotary Club was chartered in 2007 to provide a smaller, more intimate alternative to some of the larger clubs in the Treasure Valley. Boise Centennial’s community service focus is fighting childhood illiteracy through programs such as the District 5400 3rd Grade dictionary program. The club also runs monthly drives for local nonprofits.  The group’s flagship event is “Winter Wine’d Up,” a wine tasting and fundraising event for Giraffe Laugh Early Learning Centers.  The club actively donates to Rotary International and is consistently ranked as one of the top-giving clubs per capita within District 5400.
