Who We Are
We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. As Rotarians, our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.
 
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is in our DNA. As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Rotary will cultivate a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture in which people from underrepresented groups have greater opportunities to participate as members and leaders.
Global reach - local impact
Rotary Club of Menlo Park is a service club of community leaders and business professionals who volunteer their time and resources to make positive, lasting change in the Menlo Park community. Our club supports multiple community projects, including an annual scholarship program for high school graduates going on to college, and operational management of the Belle Haven community garden. The club's major fundraising event is the annual “Tour de Menlo” bike ride. To provide ongoing financial support to these community projects, the all-volunteer Rotary Club of Menlo Park Foundation was established as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. 100% of every dollar contributed to the Foundation support its designated mission. This formula has appealed to many generous friends who have supported the Foundation, enabling the endowment to exceed $2.5 million. For more information, please email info@menloparkrotary.org

We Need Your Help - Please Donate to the Rotary Club of Menlo Park Foundation

The Rotary Club of Menlo Park, through its non-profit charitable Foundation, is  increasing its financial commitment to community organizations by at least 30% in 2020.  This is due to the compelling needs related to COVID-19.

Our Giving: Comes from returns on our investment portfolio, proceeds from our Tour de Menlo Scholarship Bike Ride, and generous donations from Rotarians and local businesses.  In 2019, we gave $150,000 in scholarships and $52,000 in community grants.

The organizations we are helping in 2020 for needs relating to COVID-19 include:

  • All Students Matter
  • Ecumenical Hunger
  • Life Moves
  • Ravenswood Education Foundation
  • StarVista
  • St. Anthony's Dining Hall and Grocery Program
  • Meals on Wheels
We hope that you would be willing to make a tax-deductible donation to our charitable Foundation. Your donations go directly to local community non-profits - who are struggling with increased demand as a result of COVID-19. If, instead, you want your donation to go for college scholarships, please so designate.

Thank you for your help serving the critical needs of our local community.
