As neighbors, friends, and community leaders, the RCDU is dedicated to creating positive and lasting change in our local community and around the world. Over the years, we have served Dallas and the immediate neighborhood in helping to address its needs and challenges, as well as joining in its celebrations.
At the same time, we have worked with Rotary Clubs around the world to provide support for Rotary International’s seven areas of concern:
  1. Promoting Peace
  2. Fighting Disease
  3. Providing Clean Water and Hygiene
  4. Saving Mothers and Children
  5. Supporting Education, Especially Gender Equity
  6. Growing Local Economies
  7. Protecting the Environment
Through education, donation, and advocacy, RCDU has joined the successful fight towards eradicating polio worldwide.
The local Dallas organizations and causes we support will vary from year to year, guided by community and global needs as well as the interests and passions of our members. Our community service priorities include:
  1. Education and Literacy
  2. Housing and Food Insecurity
  3. Domestic Violence
  4. LGBTQIA+ Community Concerns
  5. Environment
Our three largest annual community service events are the dictionary project, Camp RYLA, and the Service Above Self Awards. See below for more info on these.
