"Service Above Self"
Since its inception on February 23, 1980, the Rotary Club of Dulles International Airport and its members have been supporting people in need through charitable and community service activities.
Our objective is to help raise the quality of life of those less fortunate than us.
Our members - from a wide range of occupation and backgrounds from Loudoun and western Fairfax counties - are unified by our shared commitment to enhancing the quality of life of those in our local community and internationally.
Our club members are all unpaid volunteers who raise money to fund our non-profit, 501(c)3 Dulles Foundation Club which manages the finances of our charitable activities.
We cordially invite you to join us on any Friday morning for breakfast at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport to meet our members and to learn more about our efforts to give back to our community and those in need.
Our charitable activities include:
- Donations to local organizations supporting developmentally challenged members of our community:
- Every Citizen Has Opportunities (ECHO)
- Arc of Northern Virginia
- Arc of Loudoun
- Scholarships for graduating service oriented high school students who demonstrate genuine need, desire, and ability to successfully pursue a college degree
