The oldest and largest civic organization in Southeastern North Carolina, the Wilmington Rotary Club was founded in 1915, the 150th club in the Rotary movement. It is the parent (or grandparent) to numerous other Rotary clubs in eastern North Carolina. The Wilmington club is one of six in Wilmington proper, and is part of District 7730. The club meets for lunch on Tuesdays, starting at 12:30 p.m. in the Coastline Conference Center, 501 Nutt St. in downtown Wilmington. The club has a tax-exempt Section 501-c-3 foundation, The Rotary Club of Downtown Wilmington Foundation, to which deductible contributions may be made. The club celebrated its Centennial in 2015. Current activities include the Legacy project, a partnership with Wilmington’s Williston Middle School; assistance for adult literacy tutoring through the Cape Fear Literacy Council; child literacy through the Williston Middle School and six of New Hanover County’s public schools; a water supply system for the village of Coomacka, Guyana, in partnership with the Georgetown, Guyana Rotary Club and several other Wilmington-area clubs; assistance to the Rotary Cottage at the N.C.
