Local projects include supporting the Red Cross, the Fayette County Toy Fund Christmas party, a dictionary project which gives every third grader in the Fayette County School system a dictionary each year, scholarship programs, and many local non-profit projects in the area.

Worldwide projects include the eradication of polio, South Sudan SA Clean Water Project for the elimination of the Guinea Worm, and a kidney dialysis machine project in Nepal. The list of good things Rotary International is involved with is tremendous, and all is done through fundraisers like this and donations.
