The Rotary Club of Cohasset is part of Rotary International which is a fellowship organization whose motto is "Service Above Self".  We raise money to support Education, Health, clean Water and Peace, and we spend service time fulfilling those missions.  The Cohasset club raises on average $50,000 per year and about 50% goes into the town of Cohasset via the School District and community organizations and individuals.  

We feel teaching youth to serve is key to world peace and donate to the Appalachian Service Project.  Internationally, Cohasset Rotary has helped fund Frannie Noble while she worked with families in Africa.  We sponsored her through the grant process of earning a full scholarship at a university in England to get her master as a Peace fellow.  We helped to cover transportation for Margaret O'Grady to attend the International Medical Conference after working this summer in Togo doing research related to AIDES. Meg was a 2013 graduate and current student at MIT.     

Internationally we annually support Polio Plus and are 2% away from world wide eradication of Polio.  Our club has most recently helped to build schools in the Guatemalan City dump through Safe Harbors, funded and sent four members to install 100 water filtration systems in the Dominican Republic, and funded a computer in an underprivileged school in Honduras.
