About Hunt Valley Rotary
You've probably heard a lot about Rotary, but do you really know what we are all about? We're not really a 'club', but we're an active, non-political, non-religious, service organization with over 1.2 million members worldwide. We're not really a charity either, but The Rotary Foundation is one of the largest volunteer-run charitable foundations in the world. In fact, in 2007, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation gave TRF over $100 million dollars for our global efforts in fighting polio and other diseases, ending hunger, supporting education, and promoting goodwill.
Rotarians are business and professional leaders who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of professional leaders from the community that the club serves. Our current membership consists of 36 regular and 4 honorary members. Please Contact us for more membership information.

Houck Foundation, the Club sponsors the annual Four-Way Test Program in Baltimore county schools. Each year, over 1,000 students from local elementary, middle, and high schools participate in the contest to demonstrate the values of living by the Four-Way Test.
More importantly, our Club is all about FUN! From golf outings to wine tastings to Shawan Downs, the Rotary Club of Hunt Valley is committed to finding exciting ways for our membership to raise funds and awareness for the many worthy causes that we support locally and globally.
