President's Message

The Palo Alto University Rotary Club is a Business Fellowship. Each year the Rotary International President selects a theme for Rotarians to focus on around the world. This year’s theme is “Be a Gift to the World”. Come and help us plan how we can “Be a Gift to the World” in our community and beyond.

2016 Maternal Clinic in El Salvador - FUNDED!
During the PAUR El Salvador visit in 2015, the clinic director presented the Club a compelling request for a maternal health clinic.
The clinic was desperately needed to provide an area to provide dignified care to the women of the community. The clinic would also provide contraceptive counseling and sex education training. Upon return from the trip, the Club decided to raise the money using a variety of mechanisms. In addition to an IndieGoGo campaign, PAUR collaborated with Rotary Club Mulhouse (France) and Woodside Rotary Club to raise $30,000 to fund the building of the clinic.  During our return trip to El Salvador in January 2016, we presented a ceremonial check to the clinic director for the funds to build the clinic. The timing was perfect because the threat of the Zika virus had been announced days before. The clinic is currently under construction and we look forward to sharing the long lasting impact this facility has on the community.

2015 - Oktoberfest at Stevenson House - Affordable Senior Housing

Stevenson House is a local affordable senior housing facility in Palo Alto. Each October, PAUR has hosted an Oktoberfest for the residents and their family. This year was particularly special because Stevenson House is beginning a major renovation that will ensure quality affordable housing for our local seniors for years to come.

PAUR Launches IndieGoGo Campaign!

The Palo Alto University Rotary Club has launched its first crowd funding campaign! Project Salud!
Please help us be a gift to the world.
There are three ways you can help us help young women in the community like Alejandra, Zaira and Karla
1.  Contribute – even small contributions raise awareness and popularity on IndieGoGo! This will help our campaign gain visibility on the IndieGoGo site.
2.  Send the Campaign link to friends and family!
3.  Post to Facebook – Like, tweet, share on LinkedIn – whatever your social media outlet, help us leverage awareness for the campaign and the great work Rotary does. In the end, the more people that hear about the campaign, the more likely we are to meet our funding goal.
We believe focusing on maternal health, will help improve the health and welfare of the community at large, which gives the wonderful children a better opportunity.
Thank you!
