About Rotary Clubs of Carlisle, PA

The Rotary Club of Carlisle and the Rotary Club of Carlisle Sunrise provide opportunities for service to the community and the world through a forum that fosters fellowship and fun. In conjunction with our sister club, the Rotary Club of Carlisle Sunrise, an annual holiday auction is conducted to raise funds for selected global and local projects.

Over the past 20 years, fundraising events by Carlisle's two Rotary clubs have raised over $270,000 to support international water projects in Africa and Central America. More recently, auctions have supported projects in the Carlisle community. In 2017, $17,000 was raised to support Cumberland County Historical Society. In 2018, $16,000 was raised to support Safe Harbour and Community C.A.R.E.S. In 2019, $20,000 was raised to support Domestic Violence Services of Cumberland and Perry Counties (DVSCP). In 2020, $20,000 was raised to support The Arc of Cumberland & Perry Counties (CPARC).

Thanks to the very generous sponsorships by Carlisle Rotarians, $15,150 has already been raised to support Safe Harbour. In order to match the $20,000 raised last year, the goal for the items listed in his auction is to raise an additional $4,850. Can we reach the $20,000 goal this year? That will depend on your help and generosity. If you were outbid on an item or if you would just like to make a donation toward our goal, please send your check made out to the Carlisle Rotary Club Foundation to the following address: Rotary Club of Carlisle, PO Box 301, Carlisle, PA 17013.
