The organization

Rotary Charities, located in Traverse City, Michigan, is a leader in philanthropic circles, known for learning and embracing innovation in service of tackling complex problems and creating accessible assets for all.

Our vision is a region that is fair, thriving and resilient.  Our work supports changemaker leadership and community asset development with the goal of solving our most complicated community problems.

Since our founding in 1977, Rotary Charities has worked toward positive change in the region by providing resources and leadership in the five counties we serve (Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska and Leelanau).

In recent years, we have evolved from a traditional grantmaking organization to a regional changemaking organization. This requires innovative grantmaking, impact investing, communications and capacity building strategies, as well as effective internal structures to support the work.  To learn more visit
