Welcome to the Rotary District 5180 Website!

Rotary is a leadership organization made up of local business, professional, and other community members. Rotary District 5180 has about 40 clubs and encompasses the Sacramento, Sutter, Yuba County with parts of Butte, El Dorado, Placer, and Yolo counties.

We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, and through that, we’re able to help our communities to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, and promote peace under the motto Service Above Self. 
 


 

 

Governor's Message 

As we navigate through the often busy holiday season, we are in the midst of the devastating events caused by the recent “Camp Fire” in our region. Rarely will we have an opportunity like this to be grateful for all we have and to feel the strength that comes from being a Rotarian. We feel the pride an inspiration from the Rotarians who have done all they can to help alleviate the suffering of the fire victim.

The holiday or, for many, the “Christmas Spirit,” fills the air each year at this time. Many clubs, companies, friends, and families gather together to have their parties and share good cheer, friendship, laughs and memories of the year that is nearing its end.
The season of giving gives us the opportunity to renew our faith, love, and trust of our fellow men and women and for Rotarians. It’s a time to deepen our relationship with our club members and revel in what has been accomplished and will be accomplished in the future.

I leave you with this one thought to carry with you this month. We all have heard the term, “Heaven On Earth.” No matter where you’re from, what your background is or what your religious beliefs are, we are all familiar with this saying and what it represents.

I was overwhelmed with what I saw coming from so many people over our region these last few weeks. I think the outpouring of love, care, and support was exactly what must be a part of anyone’s conception of Heaven and how we should treat one another. You see, in the midst of tragedy, something amazing can (and did) occur. We focused on others and forget about our own problems...even for a moment.

I ask you, in this month of giving, to ask yourself: What can I do to create Heaven on earth for someone else? ...even for a moment.

Yours In Rotary,

District 5180 Human Trafficking Project

"It doesn't happen here".  This is the most common response when someone mentions sex trafficking in our area.  But the Sacramento region is considered to be a hotbed for sex trafficking in the United States with California recording the highest volume of what many call "modern-day slavery."  With the recent approval of a significant, ground-breaking grant from The Rotary Foundation, Rotary District 5180 is stepping up to work with local agencies and governments to combat this problem through prevention efforts.

Working with clubs throughout the district, we will fund an education and a public awareness campaign with approximately $340,000 in combined grant and local funding.   The vision is to create a sustainable large-scale project in the Sacramento region to fight human trafficking.  The goal is to create a project that can be replicated globally through Rotary's over 1.2 million membership network of 35,000 clubs worldwide.
