Happy Valley non-profits benefit from strong Rotary Clubs in State College


By Staff Writer 

Rotary Clubs provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through a fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. State College is fortunate to have three active Rotary Clubs working toward this mission and benefiting local non-profits and the community.

Downtown State College Rotary, Rotary Club of State College and Sunrise Rotary Club and are all active in Happy Valley, with members of a wide age range and from various professions. Downtown State College Rotary is the largest of the three with 70 members; the Rotary Club of State College was the first in the area and will celebrate its 100th anniversary this year; the Sunrise Rotary was founded in 2006.

Proceeds from Rotary events, donations and grants help enable the clubs to award funds to local non-profits every year.

  • Downtown State College Rotary awarded $27,000 in funds in 2022-23 to more than 15 non-profit organizations and additional funds to help local Ukrainian refugee families adjust to living in the US.
  • The Rotary Club of State College awarded its 2022-23 funds of more than $13,000 to more than 10 non-profits.
  • Sunrise Rotary’s 2022-23 grant purchased a chiropractic table for Centre Volunteers in Medicine (CVIM).
