Rotaract Gives Back
Tulsa Rotaract gives back to the community through two main avenues: volunteering and fundraising. Below is a list of three charities that Rotaract supports both through service and through fundraising.
Revitalize T-Town is an affiliate of the nation’s largest volunteer organization that preserves and revitalizes low-income homes and communities. In Tulsa, that means that our low-income neighbors who are aging or living with a disability have help to refurbish and restore their homes to warmth and security. Since 1997, Revitalize T-Town volunteers have helped make repairs for over 1,500 homeowners!
Mainsprings: The Janada L. Batchelor Foundation for Children (JBFC)
What started as a mission to rescue abandoned and abused girls has grown into a holistic approach to alleviating extreme rural poverty. Mainsprings’ four-pronged strategy includes providing a safe home for girls, quality primary, secondary, and vocational education to both boys and girls, access to health care, and rural economic development through the Mainsprings farm located on Lake Victoria in Tanzania.
Rotaract Kicks is an initiative of Tulsa Rotaract that provides athletic shoes to Tulsa Public School students who are interested in playing sports but do not have the financial means to pay for sneakers, cleats, et cetera. Rotaract Kicks was started in 2016, and the club has already raised over $12,000 to go toward new shoes for deserving students.
In addition to the aforementioned charities, Rotaract also works with many local organizations throughout the years on various projects and events. View Rotaract's Google calendar to stay up-to-date on all volunteer opportunities.
