The National Exchange Club has more than 630 local clubs throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico providing individuals with opportunities to use their time and talents to benefit their local communities and the country as a whole. Exchange’s Core Values are family, community, and country.

Through the Programs of Service – Americanism, Community Service, and Youth Programs – members support activities that benefit youth, promote pride in our country, and honor military and public service providers, to name a few. Exchange’s National Project is the prevention of child abuse.

Exchange was founded March 27, 1911, in Detroit, MI, by a group of business executives who wanted simply to exchange ideas. Those ideas grew and were shared, and have resulted in innumerable benefits to the nation.

Currently, Exchange has more than 18,000 members in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The organization’s National Headquarters, located in Toledo, OH, acts as a resource to local-level clubs and its members.


Accepting the divine privilege of single and collective responsibility as life’s noblest gift, I covenant with my fellow Exchangites:

  • To consecrate my best energies to the uplifting of Social, Religious, Political and Business ideals;

  • To discharge the debt I owe to those of high and low estate who have served and sacrificed that the heritage of American citizenship might be mine;

  • To honor and respect law, to serve my fellowmen, and to uphold the ideals and institutions of my Country;

  • To implant the life-giving, society-building spirit of Service and Comradeship in my social and business relationships;

  • To serve in Unity with those seeking better conditions, better understandings, and greater opportunities for all.

Written in 1923 by Thomas L. Bailey,  Exchange’s National President (1925-1927) and Governor of Mississippi (1944-1946). Adopted in 1927.
