Service Above Self
Like all Rotary Clubs, the Rotary Club of San Francisco is primarily organized to be of service to the local community and to the world. 
 
We are proud of our Club's long record of service. In the past five years alone, our club has donated over $500,000 and countless volunteer hours to service projects.
 
Just a few examples:
  • Preparing and serving more than 1,500 Thanksgiving lunches at The Arc of San Francisco and the Salvation Army.
  • Building hundreds of bicycles for local children.
  • Giving thousands of dictionaries to third grade students in San Francisco schools.
  • Conducting annual Leadership Camps for hundreds of high school students.
  • Inoculating more than 5,000 children against the scourge of polio.
  • Planting vineyards and orchards in fields newly cleared of landmines.
  • Providing free surgeries to repair cleft lips and cleft palates in children around the world.
The specific projects we support continuously evolves, based on the interest of our members. Every service project begins as an idea that comes from one of our members.
