Becoming a Member

A New Member Induction fee of $285 is due within your first 30 days of membership.  From this fee, $100 is deposited into a Rotary International Annual Sustaining Account in your name.  (When $1000 contributed ($25 each quarterly billing) to this account, a Paul Harris Fellow is awarded.)  $25 is contributed to our Rotary Club of Des Moines Foundation benefiting scholarship and literacy programs.

*As of 2022 this fee is being waived.


Committee meetings provide an opportunity to meet other like minded Rotarians.  The schedule of committee meetings can be found in the E-bulletin (sent out every Tuesday).


The quarterly billing for your regular dues is broken into four categories.  Dues to the Rotary Club of Des Moines are currently $257.  Additionally, $25 is for the Rotary Club of Des Moines Foundation.  As mentioned above, in order to attain a Paul Harris Fellow ($1,000 total contributions), $25 is also noted on your monthly billing to RI (Rotary International). You also pay $22 for any Thursday lunch you attend.   Your total dues are $307 per quarter, plus lunches. Subject to change.
