About the Rotary Club of Washington, D.C
D.C. Duck Race funds support community organizations and projects of the Rotary Club of Washington, D.C.
The Rotary Club of Washington, D.C. was founded in June 1912, and we have been celebrating more than a century of Service Above Self in our local community and in the world.
Together with our Club's Foundation, the Rotary Foundation of Washington, D.C., our club is involved in projects that give back to our local community and benefit those in need around the world. We plant new cherry trees around the Tidal Basin, play bingo with wounded warriors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, provide annual grants to more than 30 local nonprofits every year, host career fairs for D.C. high school students, hand out dictionaries to every 3rd grader in the public and charter schools of Washington, D.C. and feed the homeless in the Nation's Capital.
As the oldest club in the Nation's Capital, we welcome visitors from across the country and around the world every week at our meetings. Our unique position in Washington also allows us to attract world-class speakers, including Ambassadors and business, government and nonprofit leaders. Our club meets Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. at the University Club, 1135 16th Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20036.
