As Rotarians, we are encouraged to work with Rotary International's partners to plan more effective and sustainable projects. Partnerships enable us to open even more opportunities for service, and partnership networks allow us to leverage the expertise and contacts inherent in other organizations to advance projects of mutual interest. You will find a list of Rotary’s partner organizations, here.

Rotary Clubs such as ours also form partnerships to advance projects of mutual interest. Our Club is currently partnered with Chimacum Schools, the Jefferson Teen Center, the Spokane-based Wishing Star Foundation (which supported our successful fundraiser to obtain a tracked mobility chair for a disabled boy), and the six other Rotary Clubs on the Olympic Peninsula in support of the Global Grant Composting Toilets for Klobatem Village, Legue District, Republic of Togo, Africa

To ensure that our project fits the needs of a community, Rotary International suggests that we use Community Assessment Tools to learn strategies for assessing a community's strengths, weaknesses, and needs; designing the most relevant projects; and maximizing your partnership's impact; use the memorandum of understanding for a cooperating organization template to customize an agreement between our club and its partner, and finance projects by hosting fundraisers or applying for a district or global grant.

Our communities have many potential partners, including organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, that already have relationships with Rotary. For more information and links, see Rotary’s Partnership webpage.
