Support the Rotary Club of Cainhoy-Peninsula
Duck adoptions and sponsorships for the 2023 Race are no longer available, but you can still help Charleston area nonprofits with your gift.
We Serve the Community, We Live in & Love
Who Are We? We are Your Neighbors & Small Business Community Coming Together to Help the Lowcountry
We are the new Satellite Rotary Club of Daniel Island which has been serving our community for over 20 years. Our parent club has raised over $1.9m for over 40 non-profit organizations in the Lowcountry. There are members who have been very active in supporting the Cainhoy-Peninsula community, and they have answered the call to create a satellite chapter that could 100% support the area.
When we’re not in duck mode, we are active at the Lowcountry Food Bank, helping with a book drive for the Cainhoy Elementary School, working on home repair projects for local residents, supporting US Military Veterans, and more. We are engaged in the Lowcountry and strive to make a positive impact.
We may be a new Rotary Club but we have seasoned members that have been active in other Clubs and in the community through other volunteer organizations. Our Club wholeheartedly believes in “service above self” and is excited to make a greater impact in the Cainhoy-Peninsula community and Charleston area.
Why Support Our Club: We Give Back to the Community
Our participation in the Duck Race allows us to raise funds to give back to the organizations with ties to our area. In the past few years, the Daniel Island Rotary Club has helped over 40 organizations by organizing the Charleston Duck Race and returning net proceeds to local non-profits including Trident Literacy, Cannon Street YMCA, Parklands Foundation, Water Mission, Salvation Army, My Sister’s House, Military Magnet School, Lowcountry Autism Foundation, Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy, Respite Care, Patriots Point Naval, and Maritime Museum Foundation, and many more!
It’s a Win/Win!
