We Are Rotary
Rotary brings together people like you – from all walks of life – who want to use their expertise for good. People whose sense of responsibility inspires them to give back to their communities. At Rotary, we connect for good – and form lifelong friendships in the process. Together, we empower youth, improve health, promote peace, and advance our communities in all corners of the globe. With 1.2 million members in 34,000 clubs worldwide, our global community’s impact has never been greater – and it continues to grow.
Make a Difference
Belonging to a Rotary club provides members with an opportunity to give back to their communities and to connect with like–minded leaders and friends. People join Rotary for many reasons, including community involvement, personal development, professional networking, and camaraderie. But perhaps the most important benefit is the satisfaction you gain from making a real difference in your community and in the world.
Point West Rotary gives you an opportunity to join like-minded leaders to take action on important issues affecting our community, our nation, and our planet. We also have a lot of fun — whether we’re socializing or working together on service projects. There is a potential Rotarian in anyone who cares about their community and strives to make the world a better place.
I invite you to come to one of our meetings and learn more about who we are and what we do.
We look forward to sharing the gift of Rotary with you!

You can help us make a difference and have a positive impact in the lives of others.

I joined out of slight peer pressure and general curiosity. My family had just moved to Sacramento, and we wanted to be more involved with community outreach and teach our daughters about serving others. I appreciate that I can pick and choose what I am a part of and the diversity of work that our club assists with.
I joined PWR to get to know people In Sacramento and to have a structured way to give to the community. I had no idea of how this relationship would change my life! The members of PWR are the most amazing people!
After joining Point West, I soon realized that service to community had given me a community – one that is dedicated, silly, loving, and loyal. We celebrate milestones, and console each other in loss. Since inception, nearly $2 million and countless hours have been given to those in need. I am happy to stand with my friends to continue this necessary work.
I joined PWR after participating in their “Paint the Town” project in 2006. I met wonderful Rotarians that day and it was very fulfilling to be part of this project. I stay because of the sincere and caring members, the fun we have, and the difference I feel we make together in our communities.
