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 

October 2018
 
Rotarians, 

October is Economic and Community Development Month. While passions vary and Rotarians find deep meaning in many different causes and projects supporting our 6 areas of focus and beyond, community causes are the #1 reason why most Rotarians join and participate in Rotary activities.
 
As I travel around the district, I am consistently inspired by our clubs continued commitment to lift up our communities as we continue to raise critical funds to help us serve our communities and do projects that lift them up. 
 
We must continue to 'Be the Inspiration' for everyone else to follow. Our hearts must lead us and fuel our passions to make our communities a better place for everyone by doing more and being more and we must continue to demonstrate we are part of the essential 'fabric of good' that makes this a region of caring through our leadership, innovation, inclusiveness, partnerships, empathy, and impact. 
 
On another note, a very important date in our fight to eradicate polio occurs on October 24, which is World Polio Day. The District Foundation Committee has decided we would match dollar for dollar, up to $20,000 for all donations made from October 1 - October 24, 2018, so consider making a contribution and use the leverage we have made available!  
 
If you have an event planned, be sure to register and promote it at endpolionow.org and if you don't there are lots of ideas on that site too! 
 
Finally, November 3rd is 'Holidays Around the World' at our Foundation Dinner. Rotary International Vice President, John Matthews, will be our keynote speaker and Auburn Road will entertain is with their chart-topping music style. Don't miss it! 
 
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.
