Rebuilding our community after the Alameda and Obenchain Fires

United Rotary

Southern Oregon Rotary clubs have come together to help with business recovery. One of the Objects of Rotary is the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations. What a poignant statement in these times and provides us with our call to action. Funded by a large grant from Rogue Credit Union and additional funds donated by regional Rotary Clubs, we are providing small grants through our “BACK to WORK”


  1. Sole Proprietors Tool Replacement
  2. Small Business Equipment Replacement
  3. Business with Employees that Have No Insurance or are Under-Insured

We are ready to collaborate and coordinate with other organizations and local governments to rebuild what was lost in the Almeda, Obenchain and surrounding fires.

CASA » Child Advocate Program


CASA of Jackson County serves the Southern Oregon Community through advocating for children's welfare. CASA volunteers are well-trained, everyday citizens appointed by judges to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have come under the care of Child Welfare due to parental abuse and/or neglect. CASA volunteers speak up for these children and work hard to better their lives. Children helped through CASA and the court system are far less likely to experience re-abuse, spend less time in foster care, and receive needed services more often. CASA volunteers have helped more than two million children nationwide find safe, permanent homes. Please visit to learn more about CASA of Jackson County.

Rotary Club » Eradication of Polio

Rotary Club

Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

The main objective of Rotary is service - in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development. The Rotary motto is Service Above Self.

Although Rotary clubs develop autonomous service programs, all Rotarians worldwide are united in a campaign for the global eradication of polio. In the 1980s, Rotarians raised US$240 million to immunize the children of the world; by 2005, Rotary's centenary year and the target date for the certification of a polio-free world, the PolioPlus program will have contributed US$500 million to this cause.

In addition, Rotary has provided an army of volunteers to promote and assist at national immunization days in polio-endemic countries around the world.

The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is a not-for-profit corporation that promotes world understanding through international humanitarian service programs and educational and cultural exchanges. It is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and others who share its vision of a better world. Since 1947, the Foundation has awarded more than US$1.1 billion in humanitarian and educational grants, which are initiated and administered by local Rotary clubs and district
