How to get involved

Would you like to change the world, but don’t know where to start? “Service above Self” is the Rotary motto. It is a creed shared by the more than 200 men and women who proudly belong to the Modesto Rotary Club (MoRo) and come together in service opportunities to really make a difference in our community.

MoRo members enthusiastically use their time and talents in service to others. They also enjoy fun and fellowship, and learn about the community and the world through stimulating weekly programs. Modesto Rotary Club’s membership includes and embraces a diverse representation of doers in our community by age, gender, ethnicity, race, and religion to broadly represent the community we serve.

MoRo thrives on the active participation of proven and early career leaders in a wide variety of businesses, organizations and professions. For more than 100 years, there has been no other service organization in our city quite like Modesto Rotary. From our beginning in 1920, one of the secrets to our success has been the quality of our membership. Throughout our history, we have demonstrated what “Service above Self” looks like through local projects such as the Modesto Rotary Centennial Music Garden, the Virginia Corridor, the Helen White Trail, the Stanislaus Youth Soccer League, Senior Stride, the annual award of $25,000 in scholarships to deserving high school students, and dozens of others. Many of our members also contribute time, talent and treasure to international projects that help people without our advantages beyond our local borders. Does that sound like something you’d like to be a part of? If so, we’d love to talk with you and host you at one of our Tuesday luncheons as our guest.

Prospective members are always welcome to join the Modesto Rotary Club. Membership begins with a nomination and sponsorship by a current club member in good standing. If you are interested in joining the Modesto Rotary Club and don’t know a MoRotarian, please contact us at (209) 578-9999. We would sincerely like to have a conversation with


COG Committee
