"Rotary is where neighbors, friends and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change." (Rotary International)

The Rotary Club of Carlsbad is a dynamic group of people who are passionate about changing the world. We are making an impact in our local community and in other countries to serve those in need. Our club is made up of a committed group of people who demonstrate Service Above Self. We are People of Action providing over 10,000 volunteer hours this fiscal year to our North County residents!

The list of causes that The Rotary Club of Carlsbad has supported is extensive. Some long running projects include more than 17 years providing vital facial reconstructive surgeries in Tecate Mexico, 18 years of organizing grants to serve needs in Africa and providing support to our local active-duty Marines (and their families) at Camp Pendleton in need.  We step up with much more than financial support as members actively participate in our projects. The club also works to provide over $18,000 in local scholarships for college students, trade school programs and more. We bring the much-needed support to non-profit organizations who are supplying vital services to underserved neighbors in our local community by providing hygiene kits, clothing, food, volunteer hours, financial assistance, mentorship, youth outreach, leadership training - the list goes on and on. 

If you are looking to be part of a group working to implement positive change, both here and abroad, while also developing long-lasting bonds of friendship then you have found us. Our club offers a casual environment filled with laughter and genuine affection. As we work within our community and internationally, we also support one another each week at meetings and in our daily lives.

If you'd like to learn more, please join us in person for our weekly meetings on Thursdays, at 6:30 PM, at the Holiday Inn in Carlsbad.


Yours in Service,
