Chartered in 2003, our mission is to provide funding for the educational support of youth involved in the humanities, sciences, music and the arts in the greater West Valley area of Santa Clara County; to support international projects in coordination with the efforts and purposes of the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International; and for other publicly beneficial projects as the trustees of the charitable foundation may determine appropriate.

Members of our club have traveled to India to fight polio, South and Central America to help burn victims and surgeries for those born with cleft lip and cleft palate, Mississippi to rebuild houses devastated by the hurricanes, hiked the Himalayas to help an orphanage, walked in high heels to support sexual assault awareness and we provide warm clothing and food for those in need. We have given scholarships to students interested in studying architecture, art, science and drama, raised funds for the Los Gatos High School Band Boosters, local Boy Scout troops and Sea Explorers. We support Art education through the Los Gatos Art Docents program for K-5. Our members volunteer at the West Valley Community Service Food Bank and other Services. Our Club helped start the Lighting for Literacy Program which has taken off across the Rotary family around the world.  

We welcome you to explore what we have to offer and invite you to join us for Breakfast on Wednesday mornings at 7:30 a.m. to meet us and learn more about what we do. If you have an interest in serving your community and having an impact for change – we’re here to help!

Latest Club News

Recently, SCC Sheriff Sgt. Jeremy Jones brought his K9 Partner Raider to our Club for a visit. We were impressed with the special bond between Sgt. Jones and Raider, as well as how Raider lovingly interacted with us as strangers. Sgt Jones told us about how his K9 partner assists him with his law enforcement duties, including sniffing for bombs and apprehending "bad guys". This is a great calling to service that we should all appreciate.
 
We continue to receive requests for donation opportunities to assist fire victims to the north and to the south, as Rotarians are so willing and generous in their desire to help those suffering in these horrible tragedies. 
 
Please join us in helping so many folks in need in Paradise and Woolsey who have lost everything. In the spirit of the Holidays, we hope your generosity can help make things a little better for them.
 
Each month, we will feature a story highlighting one of Los Gatos Morning Rotary Club's proud members. Get to know a little more about the Club, by hearing about our members.
