About Our Club


The Rotary Club of Hoboken was founded in 1921 and is part of the world wide service organization known as, Rotary International.  Rotary International was established in Chicago in 1905, and it quickly grew throughout the US and to over 80 countries in less than 10 years. Rotary is credited as the world's first service organization, and it occupies the only non governmental seat at the United Nations. The seat is non-voting, but it recognizes the importance of the Rotary, with its international members and contacts once being fundamental to international communications.

Today, Rotary has over 1.2 million members in 200 countries worldwide. Hoboken Rotary was founded 89 years ago, and it was started to further the goals of community service, international understanding, health, and literacy around the world and especially in the local community. With over 45 current members, Hoboken Rotary is looking to grow even more.

Club meetings are held on Tuesdays at 12:15pm at The Black Bear Bar & Grill 205 Washington St St Hoboken NJ.
