“Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world.
Rotarians don't have that problem.”
Welcome to the Colonie-Guilderland Rotary Club

We are involved in our communities.
We connect with other professionals.
We share our time & experience with young people.
We support global causes, like eradicating polio.
We use our skills to help others.

Help Ukrainens Recover from War
War is complicated and oftentimes, resources don't make it into the right hands. So how do we help, when you can't always be sure that your contributions make it into the right hands?
Submitting your donation through Shelter Box (sponsored by Rotary International) takes the guesswork out of the equation. We'll ensures that funds are appropriated correctly, to help people impacted by the crisis in the Ukraine.
