Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary members have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

Who We Are

History of Rotary Club of Brownsville Sunrise

Founded in 1986, Brownsville Sunrise Rotary Club now counts with over 50 community leaders among its members. The first president was Rusty Faulk and three of its original charter members are still involved with the club to this day!

Brownsville Sunrise meets weekly to share fellowship, build friendships, and listen to influential and intriguing guest speakers. Members participate in over 10 service projects and have multiple fundraisers within the community that help give back. That includes grants to local non-profit organizations, scholarships, international servicing projects to our sister city of Matamoros Mexico or as far as other countries overseas. 

We are an active, enthusiastic group and are always on the lookout for other like-minded individuals who want to have a positive impact in the community. Join us!

What We Do

Service Above Self

Members of the Rotary Club of Brownsville Sunrise believe that being of service to our club, community and the world is the best way to build successful businesses and deeply satisfying personal lives.

In the process we develop lifelong friendships and strong networking relationships by meeting other local Rotarians, use our professional expertise to better serve the community and advance international understanding and goodwill.

Rotarians follow high ethical standards as embodied by the 4-Way Test:

  • Is it the TRUTH?
  • Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  • Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Avenues of Service

We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity. If you would like to do more in Sunrise Rotary and use your professional expertise to help others, join one of five Rotary’s Avenues of Service.

  • Club Service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
  • Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society. Learn more in An Introduction to Vocational Service and the Code of Conduct.
  • Community Service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest. Learn more in Communities in Action: A Guide to Effective Projects.
  • International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.
  • Youth Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.
