What are we about ....

Service Above Self.

Launched in 1986 by a group of energetic professionals, the Phoenix Squaw Peak Rotary Club was originally sponsored by Phoenix's Midtown Rotary Club.  In the ensuing years, the club has organized numerous community projects raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for local and international charities.  All while having a heck of a lot of fun!

Our two Annual Fundraisers are the Skeeter McFee Golf Tournament and Football Fever Tickets.

 Why is the 'RINO' our Mascot?

We have always taken a slightly different path than others.  Early in our Club's existence, we accepted the challenge of being 'Routinely Innovative, Never Ordinary'.   Thus, the RINO mascot was born......

What is Rotary?

We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.

Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

Our distinct point of view and approach gives us unique advantages:

  • We see differently: Our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges in unique ways.

  • We think differently: We apply leadership and expertise to social issues—and find unique solutions.

  • We act responsibly: Our passion and perseverance create lasting change.

  • We make a difference at home and around the world: Our members can be found in your community and across the globe.

HOW DO WE WORK?

Our impact starts with our members—people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities' toughest challenges. Their efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world. Rotary is led by our members—responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organization's mission and values in their elected roles.

Our International POLIO Project....

Polio Eradication Rotary is close to eliminating the second largest human disease in history after smallpox, with a 99.9 percent reduction in polio cases worldwide since 1985, when Rotary launched its PolioPlus program. In 1988, Rotary spearheaded the creation of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative with the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Polio eradication remains Rotary’s top priority. To date, Rotary has contributed more than US$1.6 billion and countless volunteer hours to help immunize more than two billion children against polio in 122 countries. Currently, Rotary is working to raise $35 million per year through 2018 for polio eradication, which will be matched 2 to 1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
