The Rotary Club ~ New Bern Breakfast supports many worthwhile causes locally, nationally, and globally. Examples include:

  • Our signature "Kicks-for-Kids" program that every fall provides needy elementary school children with a pair of new shoes

  • Scholarships to High School students to assist with their expenses in their first year of university

  • Support for programs for underprivileged children at the YMCA

  • Support for the Food Bank at RCS

  • Contributions to the “Polio Plus” program; a Rotary International effort to eradicate polio worldwide

  • Local “Community Grants” that allow not-for-profits to provide much-needed services in the New Bern area

  • Contributions to global grants that might provide clean water, sanitation, medical or educational facilities or similar support primarily in Central America and Africa

In order to achieve these goals, in addition to contributions from Club members, we ask the local community to assist us in raising the necessary funds. As such we have a legally established charitable fund (503(c)1) that is maintained separately from the Club operating funds.
