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 

November 2018
 
Dear Rotarians,
 
We are just over a week from when the fires started and the impact of its power is still being uncovered. With over 60 deaths and hundreds missing, thousands in evacuation centers, hotels, homes of family or friends and over 10,000 structures gone, the recovery from these fires will take a long time. It leaves questions as to whether that area will ever be the same and what is certain is the victims that will be forever changed. Will they rebuild? Will they move? How will they make a living? What about their kids and school? Loss of possessions, loss of that feeling of safety, loss of what they knew…..it goes on and on.
 
The citizens of Chico, Oroville, and Gridley and other cities close to the fire are also impacted as they rally to support the victims. They are hosting victims, donating time, resources, businesses, and their hearts in reaching out as these communities take in and help those affected.
 
You would be very proud and your hearts warmed by the willingness of so many to support and help out their fellow traveler on this earth who has had their world forever changed.
 
The support by clubs and Rotarians in this district has been overwhelming and inspired in me the absolute importance of Rotary in the world. 
 
Donations can still be made and will be distributed to our clubs in Oroville and Gridley to put directly into the relief of victims of these terrible fires. 
 
You can send checks to:
 
Rotary District 5180 Foundation

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.
