The Gilroy Exchange Club is a nonprofit community service organization. We serve people in need, promote crime prevention, serve senior citizens, recognize military and public safety service providers. We promote Americanism programs, and our national project is the prevention of child abuse. The Exchange Club of Gilroy was established in 1990 and currently has 37 members.
Mission and Core Values:
Each member of Exchange holds near to their heart three core values – Family, Community and Country.
Commitment to Family is interpreted not only as one’s family needs, but also those of all American families. Strengthening families, with a focus on youth, is addressed in many ways through Exchange’s Programs of Service.
Commitment to the Community where an Exchange site resides is the focal point for each club’s efforts. Exchange is unique as a service organization in that it has the flexibility to structure projects that target the specific needs of a particular geographic location, rather than being restricted to a certain cause.
Commitment to Country. Exchangites are proud to join veterans and other civic groups in promoting Americanism as the rich blessing of democracy and freedom, and in educating today’s youth to cherish its values.
These three values are translated into actions every day to bring about positive results through the work of our members.
Members provide community service locally. This is the best reason people become members – the chance to serve others and experience the fulfillment that comes from giving. Exchange sites believe in Unity for Service. Together, we can make a difference, every day.
