What we're about

Rotary clubs are worldwide service organizations that also stress socializing in and out of the clubs. This MeetUp group will introduce people to the Silicon Valley Rainbow Rotary Club, the second LGBTQIA+ Rotary Club in the world.

We are looking for people that are either members of the LGTBQIA+ community or allies. Our primary focus is on community service projects in the LGBTQIA+ community, however, we are not limited to only that.

Our meetings are held once a month and currently are held online via Zoom. We discuss projects and project ideas. We also hosts socials to stay connected with each other. Along with our focus on community service, we provide opportunity for professional and personal development. Rotary opens the door to many possibilities!

Cider Junction Social

Cider Junction

Our socials are an easy way to get to know one another better while building team cohesion. They provide the perfect opportunity to learn more the club and our projects from our members.

Join us this month at Silicon Valley's first Cider Bistro - a place where American and European style small plates are paired with craft ciders from around the world (and craft beers too!). From craft ciders made in the traditional style (dry, aged, sometimes still, sometimes sparkling) to experimental ciders fermented or infused with hops, charcoal and mint. The Cider Junction offers ciders on tap and in bottles and cans. Our friendly staff will help you find the perfect pairing of small plates and ciders.

About the event
Please save the date! You are cordially invited to come over the rainbow to celebrate our club’s second anniversary at our virtual gala on Saturday, October 23, 5-6:30 p.m. PT.

Our gala, which will be a review of the work we’ve done over the last two years, will feature FAMA Foundation, a group we are working with to build a school in Jalisco, Mexico, and other groups we are partnering with. You’ll hear from a wide range of speakers from our speaker series and enjoy talented performers, some of whom have graced our previous talent reviews. You’ll learn about our club, the amazing folks we’ve partnered with, and have a blast!

We’ll also hold an online auction that will run Thursday, October 21, 8 a.m. PT through Saturday, October 23 8 p.m. PT. Information about how the auction works and how to access the auction site will be provided at a later date.

Proceeds will be distributed between our current international project with FAMA Foundation and our general fund to promote our club’s programs.

About Our International Project
Our club and the FAMA Foundation have joined forces to create a sustainable change internationally. Through collaboration the results are BETTER TOGETHER/ MEJORES JUNTOS. A component of Rotary club work is providing international service, while FAMA has a proven track record in improving the quality of life for underserved communities in Mexico.

Working together, the Silicon Valley Rainbow Rotary and FAMA hope to fulfill a dream of building a permanent, functioning school building, as well as providing supplies and equipment to operate the school. A local school will enhance the education level and opportunities of the children as well as adult residents.

The goal for this project is to build two classrooms because the students range from preschool to middle school. The building is being done in phases as funds are raised – build the foundation, build the first school room, build the second school room, and add a bathroom. Total cost for this project is ~$24,000 USD.
