Why Join Rotary?
The Rotary Club of Menlo Park is an all-volunteer, non-partisan organization of community leaders. Our motto is "Service Above Self."
Rotary Club members are dedicated to making our community Menlo Park and the world a safer, healthier, better educated place for all. 
Rotarians experience the fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community and we have fun while doing it. 
Most people join Rotary for the service opportunities or the potential for business networking. But long-term members report that what they value most about Rotary membership are the friendships we develop with each other.
 
What makes us different?
Our many community service projects include an annual scholarship program for high school graduates going on to college, a community garden in the Belle Haven community, 1:1 mentorship for scholarship recipients, annual community grants to local nonprofit organizations, and more. Our charitable nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, Menlo Rotary Community Foundation, leverages every dollar to support the community.  This formula has appealed to many generous friends who have supported the Foundation, enabling the endowment to exceed $3 million.
