Through our Waynesville Rotary Foundation, we provide multiple academic scholarships to Haywood County students at Haywood Community College and schools in the UNC system. Scholarship recipients are nominated by school personnel and then a committee of Rotarians makes the final selections. Scholarships may be renewed throughout the recipient's academic years if performance measures are met.

Each Friday during the school year, Waynesville Rotarians meet the Manna Food Bank truck from Asheville and deliver in excess of 500 backpacks of meals to food challenged children within the Haywood County School system. Without this service, these children would likely not have food for the weekend.
Since Folkmoot's conception, Waynesville Rotary has been a strong supporter both financially and through volunteer hours at Folkmoot events. Waynesville Rotary is proud to be a part of bringing the international community to Haywood County and Western North Carolina. For more information regarding Folkmoot, follow this link:
