The Rotary Club of Minneapolis is a diverse collection of civic-minded business and professional leaders. We join together for fellowship, professional enrichment, and the opportunity to serve. Our members contribute their time, expertise, and money to improve the community, and to foster international understanding and goodwill.
The mission of Club #9 is summed up in three words.
Learn, Connect, Serve.
A place where you can make deeper connections.
Our Friday lunches and monthly brewery tour meetings are designed to connect you and other Minneapolis professionals in a free form exchange of ideas and business networking. And it doesn’t stop there. Deeper connections are made in our community service initiatives, education initiatives, and more.
A place where you can do good for others.
The youth in our communities and around the world are in our every thought and our every action. Rotary has long been a leader in the effort to eradicate Polio. Our members have also joined clubs around the world to bring running water to schools in Guatemala and lead immunization efforts in Nepal. Here at home, we provide direct support for Eastside Neighborhood Services and scholarships for students across the metro area. The opportunities to live our purpose of Service above Self are endless here.
