From The Rotary Club of Alexandria: The Rotary Club of Alexandria and The Alexandria Day Nursery and Children's Home hosted the annual Contributions Day Luncheon on June 12th , 2018. The event was held at Belle Haven Country Club in Alexandria, VA. Attended by over 200 people, the program honored the achievements of 54 Alexandria non-profit organizations and granted funds to further each of their missions.

The Rotary Club of Alexandria has multiple fund raising events during the year. The most significant for fund raising is the annual Taste for Giving event, which is held every year at the U.S. Patent and Trade Office in October. In 2017, the Taste for Giving charity dinner and cocktail event raised $80,000; 100% of which is given to charity. Currently, the Rotary Club of Alexandria has invited Alexandrian's to honor their heroes with a program called "Flags for Our Heroes." The Flags for Our Heroes display will be visible on Route 1, north of Simpson Field, from June 29th thru July 7th. These programs are examples of the effort sustained by the thoughtful members of the Rotary Club of Alexandria.

This year, the Rotary Club of Alexandria was able to donate $135,000 to 54 nonprofits in Alexandria. The missions of those 54 organizations are varied, ranging from healthcare to housing, and childcare to food assistance. "Our Club is an organization of approximately 115 business people dedicated to serving the community of Alexandria and participating in projects around the world to assist those less fortunate in the areas of education, water sanitation and providing peace throughout the world," said club president, Mike Wicks. "Our motto is Service Above Self."
