Rotary is made up of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who have come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.
The Rotary Club of Campbell & San Jose West was established in 2001, the result of a spirited merger of two clubs with more than 100 combined years of Rotary service to the communities of Campbell and West San Jose (including the Westgate, Burbank, Willow Glen, South Bascom, and San Carlos business districts).
In 2008, the Rotary Club of Campbell & San Jose West re-rechristened itself the “Rotary Club of Campbell,” to reflect our strengthening community identity within the City of Campbell. The Club continues to serve a broad swath of west San Jose (including Willow Glen), which itself surrounds and envelopes most of Campbell proper.
In 2011, the Rotary Club of Willow Glen merged into the Rotary Club of Campbell, reflecting the growing connections between our two communities.
Our club is highly engaged in the community and offers a number of weekly, monthly, and annual opportunities to give back, including:
- Assembling back-to-school backpacks for children serviced through EMQ Families First
- Providing books for local school libraries
- Funding transportation for Campbell Middle School Science Camp
- Supporting and facilitating leadership programs for high school and middle school students:
- RYLA – Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp
- ELC – Enterprise Leadership Conference teaching high school juniors the principles of business
- 21st Century Learning Skills – a program for middle school students
- Judging a high school speech contest
- Offering scholarships to Del Mar High School students
