As a Howard County Civic organization, the Sunrise Rotary Club actively supports several projects. Support is provided through fundraising efforts, in-kind donations, members' volunteer activities, and Club contributions. While some Clubs provide limited support to many organizations, the Sunrise Rotary concentrates its resources on three projects while maintaining additional funds to support projects throughout the year on an ad hoc basis. See the dropdown Projects Menu for a complete listing of Sunrise Rotary projects.
