Community Investments

Each of the over 30,000 Rotary Clubs throughout the world chooses its own areas of interest to provide Service Above Self. Traditionally the Venice Nokomis Rotary Club has made a significant investment in youth activities in our community as well as supporting international projects. Throughout the year we raise money through major fundraisers such as the Annual Fine Arts and Crafts Show in January and the Annual Toast to Venice in March/April. Our fiscal year begins on July 1st and concludes on June 30th. Historically the Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club has invested between $30,000 to $50,000 into youth oriented enterprises. 
For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015 we provided financial support to the youth oriented activities of the following organizations:

  • Big Brothers and Big Sisters

  • Boys and Girls Clubs of Venice

  • Boy Scout Troops 77 and 1001
