The Rotary Club of Key West, founded in 1916, is among the oldest and most respected organizations in Key West. Our club has been awarding scholarships to KWHS seniors for decades. Our club raises funds throughout the year and sponsors the Paul J. Scher Memorial Scholarship for $20,000. This scholarship is awarded to the graduating KWHS senior for whom the scholarship will make the difference in being able to attend college or not. Our club has literally changed lives- creating opportunities for our youth to fulfill the American Dream of a quality education and careers. We also sponsor the Greg O'Berry Scholarship and donate funds for the Florida Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program. Since our club fundraisers are staffed by volunteer Rotarians, our overhead is low and 100% of the profits from our fundraisers directly benefit these children.
