Rotaract of Springfield, MO

Our History

The Rotary Club of Springfield–Southeast chartered the Rotaract Club of Springfield on June 14, 1995 after Rotarians saw the need for an organization targeted to young professionals in southwest Missouri. Today, the club is made up of more than 60 members under the age of 30.

Rotaract meets at 425 Downtown twice a month, and its local charity of choice is Great Circle. In 2019, Rotaract made a donation of more than $17,000 to Great Circle—the largest annual gift made by the club to date.

Each year, Rotaract partners up with the Rotary Clubs of Springfield to help make the annual Rock'n Ribs BBQ Festival a success. Started in 1999, the event has raised more than $1 million for local children's charities.  

Our largest annual fundraiser is our Double Dare event, where local businesses and Rotary clubs join us for a night of fun, games, trivia, silent auction, 50/50 raffles and fellowship. This event has grown exponentially every year since its inception. For more details, contact us at or follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Please consider sponsoring a team, table,round or more! We are grateful for all of our generous sponsors but are always on the lookut for future contributions of any kind - be it a silent auction item, a sponsorship/donation, or just forming a team to participate in the event.
