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

Reading is the single most important skill in being able to function in today’s society. Those who cannot read are isolated from the abundance of information that surrounds us. Rotary International is aware of this fact and has designated September as Basic Education and Literacy Month. There are 775 million people in the world over the age of 15 who cannot read. That equates to 17% of people worldwide who are illiterate.
 
When we look at this statistic, most of us assume the literacy rate in the US is far lower than 17%. In fact, we aren’t much better. We have 14% of our citizens who cannot read, and 21% who read below the 5th-grade level. These figures continue to decline every year.
 
Literacy is an area where we can make a change. I believe the creative minds of our district Rotarians can think of many ways to Be The Inspiration in the fight to improve literacy in our area.
 
Did you notice the word “Inspiration” popped up again when we talk about ways to improve people’s lives? If we inspire others, good things will happen. I challenge everyone to do just that...Inspire.

Inspire Action...

Inspire Ideas & Solutions...

Inspire Fellowship...

Inspire Service...

Eyes are upon us in our community, so let’s show our region that we are a force in making a positive change every day. Let’s show them our hearts lead us, and we have a vision and direction for a better world.

 
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.
