Through its annual “All Fore” Kids Charity Golf Tournament, the Wills Point Rotary Club has been able to award more than $20,000 in educational grants for the district.

Wills Point Rotary has served our community for 76 years. While we join Rotary International's quest to eradicate polio from the world, our primary focus is on improving the lives of those in our community. Specifically, we focus on making the lives of the children in our community better.

The Wills Point Rotary Club has contributed over $60,000 to the Wills Point community.  Service projects have included donations to Head-Start, giving dictionaries to third grade students, and paying for eye-glasses for WPISD students in need, among other acts of charity.

During this time the club has sponsored numerous high school juniors to Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), a weekend leadership training program. The club has also awarded over $30,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors to further their education beyond high school.
