Make a Positive Impact with Friendships that Last a Lifetime

Phoenix Rotary 100 is leading the charge with
local philanthropy, fun social events and professional networking

Rotary is an organization of over 33,000 local clubs serving their communities around the world. Rotarians are leaders in their vocation, profession and community.

We meet weekly to discuss improving the lives of people, both locally and globally. We need and encourage diversity of membership in order to be more effective in this task.
The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self”.

The Phoenix Rotary 100 chapter was founded in 1914 as the 100th club to join Rotary. Through the years, Phoenix Rotary 100 has been at the forefront of community service in Phoenix and beyond, with a past and present membership list reading like a “Who’s Who” in Arizona’s history. Mayors, governors, U.S. senators and one Supreme Court Justice
have all been a part of Phoenix Rotary 100.

Teaching Microscopy to save Children from Malaria

Rotary International is working with the Merck Global Health Institute (MGHI) to teach clinical microscopy skills to laboratory technicians from developing countries to better diagnose malaria and other causes of fever in vulnerable populations. MGHI funds the transportation, feeding, housing, and education at an accredited university. Rotary raises funds to purchase much needed microscopes.

Every year, about 240 million people are diagnosed with malaria, the majority in sub-Saharan Africa. In any given year, about 60,000 children, aged 5 and under, die of malaria. This project began with help from the International Outreach Committee (IOC) of the Phoenix Rotary 100 club. It was also supported through the generosity of our District 5495.

MGHI and the Phoenix Rotary 100 Club have sponsored training in Botswana, Ghana, and Burkina Faso. New microscopes were donated to Botswana and Ghana. Additional training is planned for next year in Colombia, Kenya, Nigeria, and Pakistan.

Phoenix Rotary 100 member Jim Mulry is the lead manager for this project. The need for microscopes is great. Please feel welcome to email Jim should you like to donate to this project or to arrange for a presentation. The microscopes cost $250 each. The IOC would like to thank our District 5495 and the Rotary Club of Sun City West for the opportunity to present this noble project to them and to the Rotary Club of Anthem for their contribution.

PRCC Donates $106,672 in 2021-22 Rotary Year

Tax-deductible charitable contributions from club members through our Annual Pledge Drive and fundraising activities, as well as donations from the public, provide the funding for PRCC that enables it to make a meaningful impact on our local community as well as communities afar.
