What is the Knoxville Downtown Sertoma Club?

We are a 501c3 organization that meets every Wednesday at noon at the Foundry in downtown Knoxville, TN. The Downtown club is a part of the Sertoma International club which is a not-for-profit civic organization with members providing community service across Canada, Puerto Rico and the United States. Every year, Sertoma clubs raise more than $20 million for community needs. Through these projects, as well as scholarships and grants, Sertoma clubs return those funds to their respective communities – and they have lots of fun doing it!

Our local organization strives to partner with local organizations that are trying to make a difference in the community. What sets apart local Sertoma organizations from other civic clubs is the flexibility to not only support our national fundraising goals but also to help out in our communities by raising money for local organizations and volunteering.
