Review for Los Gatos Rotary Charities Foundation, Los Gatos, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a proud member of this Rotary Club. The members really care about helping others and giving back to our community. I was surprised just how much money our clubs gives out to local non-profits, youth leadership development, College scholarships, and international non-profits. We give out an average of $200,000 annually from our Charities and scholarship foundation. We serve in our community at least once a month and partner with many organizations such as Rebuilding Together, Rise Against Hunger, Saint Luke Pantry and so many more. If you want to meet good-hearted people - Join us! We meet every Tuesday @los gatos lodge 12:15pm - 1:30pm. www.losgatosrotary.org

Review for Los Gatos Rotary Scholarship Fund, Los Gatos, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Los Gatos Rotary has been able to give out approximately $40,000 a year to local high school seniors who not only worked hard for their grades but show strong community involvement and leadership skills. Many of these students need the financial support as well so providing them with a scholarship not only helps them financially - but shows them that others believe in them and they are invested in their future. Rotarians who are members of this club meet every week and determine ways they can serve their local community and make the world a better place. Investing in youth is so important as they are our future leaders!

Review for Los Gatos Rotary Charities Foundation, Los Gatos, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a proud Rotarian with Los Gatos afternoon Rotary Club. We hold 2 major fundraisers each year and with the proceeds and the money in our Charities Foundation we are able to give back financial support to local and international non-profits. I am a mother of 3 and I love that Rotary invests in youth leadership development and opportunities. All of my children have been able to attend Rotary hosted leadership development camp called (RYLA - Rotary Youth Leadership Award) and ELC (Enterprise Leadership Conference) at no cost as Rotarians pay for this development. The networking for Rotarians and youth are worth it and you find they become life-long friends of yours! Since Rotary is international they are able to make this world better and with the help of many Rotary has (almost) eradicated Polio! There is so much more - check it out - www.losgatosrotary.org - Becoming a member costs very little - but you gain so much.
