We have supported the following organizations: Michael Garron Hospital, Emily House, Meals on Wheels, Interval House, WoodGreen Community Services, Regent Park CRC Community Programs and many other local community organizations. Our global initiatives include building schools in third world countries and ensuring fresh, safe water is supplied where needed in the world.
Since 1965, the Toronto East Rotary Club has had a single goal: “Service Above Self”. We make a difference in our community with our time and talents and with every dollar we have raised from our events including our annual golf tournament. For the past 17 years this tournament has succeeded because of you - the golfers who attend and the valued partners who sponsor our tournament. We are reaching out to you again for your support to help us continue to help those that need us the most. Please consider partnering with us again this year to make a difference!

The Trustees of The Rotary Foundation recently confirmed the award of two District 7070 Global Grant Scholarships for the 2017-2018 academic year.

One of the recipients is Spencer McMurray, sponsored by the Toronto East Rotary Club and a graduate of University of Toronto where he received his Honours Bachelor of Arts in Peace, Conflict, and Justice, minor in Political Science. Spencer will pursue a Masters of International Security, with a concentration in conflict resolution and a regional concentration on the Middle East, and the study of Arabic at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) at Sciences Po, in Paris, France. His scholarship was awarded under Rotary Area of Focus Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution.
Spencer plans to continue his career in conflict negotiation, building on his experience as a writer and research assistant with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in East Jerusalem. He selected the PSIA program to prepare him to write holistic peace agreements to create sustainable solutions and policies, particularly in post-conflict societies, so that migrants can thrive and live to their full potential.
At a special dinner held at Whistler’s Grille on Thursday July 13, the Toronto East Rotary Club honoured two area students for their extensive volunteer work during their high school years. The $2000.00 TERC Community Service Scholarship Award was presented to Sal Sabila of Monarch Park CI (shown on the left) and Cathy Nabukalu of St. Patrick Catholic SS.
Sal pioneered efforts at her school for Gender Equality and Mental Wellness and founded the Youth Gravity team in Regent Park. She will be attending the University of Toronto to study Physical Science and Mathematics. Cathy, in addition to a long list of community service activities both in and out of school, was selected to take a leadership role in the Toronto Police Youth Community Program deployed to the Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club. She is enrolled at the University of Windsor to study Forensic Psychology and Criminology. Both students delivered inspiring speeches detailing their contributions and confirming their on-going commitment to volunteer community service.

At our lunch on May 4th, 2017, we listened intently to the thoughts of four religious leaders in the Toronto East community and were left with a special thought from each.
The broad societal issues that were raised by the religious leaders and where, we as a Club, can continue to contribute, are:
Poverty, housing for the marginalized, homelessness, hunger and food security, clean water, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, welcoming spaces for the transgender and LGBTQ community, safe havens for youth, mental health, individual isolation, refugee sponsorship and Indigenous rights.

Polio Anywhere is a Risk to Children Everywhere

Polio cases have declined rapidly since 1985, but the fight isn't over. Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, and for as little as $0.60, a child can be protected against the virus for life. If we don't finish the fight right now, more than 10 million children under the age of five could be paralyzed by polio in the next 40 years.
Since the global initiative began more than 30 years ago, Rotary and its partners have reduced polio cases by more than 99 percent worldwide. There are only two countries where the wild polio virus has never been stopped: Afghanistan and Pakistan.

It’s Achievable: 

There is no cure for polio, but the polio vaccine successfully prevents cases.

End Polio Now!
