Our mission is to benefit the community and our world through action, integrity, service and fellowship. Together, through a collaboration of business, professional and community leaders, we take action to create lasting change.

For decades our club has been a leader: donating time, money and expertise to our Island community. Schools, parks, cultural activities, events and local non-profits have been our focus and beneficiaries.

Fellowship events are not just fun! Our meetings also provide a forum for business, civic and academia leaders.


The best way to learn more about our club and the work we do, is to experience it first hand.


Rotary Meetings

Visitors are welcome!


The health and safety of our community are of the utmost concern. 

Physical meetings have resumed at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, located at 1187 Wyatt Way NW. Participating in our meetings via Zoom is also an option. BIRC has acquired equipment that enables us to hold our meetings live and broadcast them via Zoom

At this time, all who attend our physical meetings are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID. 

View our club calendar.  It includes dates and times of meetings, Zoom links, and Club events.  For more information on our E-meetings and how to join, contact us here.  

As a service organization of business and community leaders, we will continue to make a positive impact in our local and global community during this challenging time.

What is Rotary?

Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.

News and Information

We are excited to share our plan to return to Woodward Middle School this summer for our traditional, one-of-a-kind community event – The Rotary Auction & Rummage Sale!  The event date has been scheduled for July 2.

For our Auction, the community comes together in a big way….. donating items, volunteering, shopping for bargains and more.

Please know that we are assuming large gatherings will once again be safe, and we’ll make adjustments to follow all public health protocols.

The BI Rotary, along with six other Island organizations, was recognized by the Bainbridge Community Foundation with its 2021 Humanitarian Award for the set up and administration of the COVID vaccination clinics here on Bainbridge.

Rotarian Doctor Fred Hoffer, aka “The Vaccination King” is shown here with the award presented at a ceremony on November 4.

Continuing a tradition that started with our first scholarship recipients in 1957, the Bainbridge Island Rotary Club presented Community Service Recognition Scholarships to 12 recipients at the Club meeting on May 17th. Past Club President Todd Tinker awarded the Scholarships, totaling $40,000, at a ceremony that was truly inspiring as we listened to the accomplishments of each winner.
