Our Impact
Leawood Rotary has established the Leawood Rotary ACT (A Child's Tomorrow) Fund through which we support many local organizations that are important to our members.  Fundraising activities throughout the year enable us to make impactful contributions to organizations throughout the Kansas City metro that benefit families and children.
 
REACH
 
One of the tenants of Rotary is Vocation... leveraging our area of expertise to help the community.  We established REACH with Bishop Ward High School in 2005 to mentor high school students, most of which have a chance to be the first in their family to attend college.  We currently have nine college students on scholarship and are truly grateful for the opportunity to help the current group of REACH students as they move through their junior and senior years at Bishop Ward.
 
 
JOCO Christmas Bureau
 
Johnson County is a blessed community, however, there are between 10,000 and 12,000 families in our community that are in need of our assistance.  Leawood Rotary partners with Johnson County Christmas Bureau by contributing both financially and through service.  Coats for teens is a particular need, and in 2016 we completed a coat drive that we would like to eclipse in 2017.  Our members volunteer at the Christmas Bureau facility throughout December and we'd like to invite you to get involved and work alongside us.
