Why Join Rotary?

Rotary volunteers distributing food

There's something that all Rotary club members have in common: We take action. As community volunteers, we reach out to neighbors in need. We build, support, and organize. We save lives. We work locally and globally.

Around the world and around the corner, the 1.2 million men and women of Rotary:

  • Get involved in their communities
  • Connect with other professionals
  • Share their time and experience with young people
  • Support global causes, such as eradicating polio
  • Use their skills to help others

Whether you're a veteran volunteer or new to community service, we're looking for people like you. The rewards you will receive from belonging to Rotary are varied and vast:

Fun and friendship

Rotary members have a lot of fun! Every club arranges parties and activities and gives members the chance to forge new friendships with like-minded people who share common goals.

Giving back to the community

Joining Rotary gives you the chance to make a difference. Be it fundraising for a local charity, volunteering at an event, working with young people or building a school in Africa, the list of opportunities is endless.

In 2006, the Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary Club established the Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary Club Foundation a 501(c)3 public charity.

Proceeds from the Club’s premier fundraiser, Lobsterfest, total about $80,000 per year thanks to the generosity of the event’s 1,200 attendees. For 2009–10, more than $85,000 in contributions to community, vocational and international projects were made by the Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary Club Foundation. In addition, a special $30,000 donation was made to the Yorba Linda High School.

Business networking

Networking opportunities are endless. Rotary consists of a cross-section from every business community and its members come from all walks of life.

Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR is about companies acting responsibly, ethically, legally and with respect for the community and the environment, all of which are in keeping with Rotary's own guiding principles. Being involved with Rotary and getting involved in your community will inevitable enhance your and your company's standing with your customers.

Personal growth and development

Being a member of Rotary could help you develop leadership, public speaking, social and vocational skills as well as improve your cultural awareness. Businesses often encourage their staff to become involved with Rotary to capitalise on these opportunities and notice a marked improvement in skills such as event management, organisation, time management, teamwork and leadership.

A Worldwide Community

By joining Rotary, you become a member of a vast international family of 1.2 million members worldwide. You will be welcome - even encouraged - to attend any of the 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical regions. This bond creates an instant sense of belonging, wherever you are in the world. Many a member in need of a local doctor, lawyer, hotel, dentist, or other expertise while travelling has found assistance through Rotary.
