Philanthropy Spotlight: Del Mar Rotary Club

Upholding the motto “Service Above Self,” the Del Mar Rotary Club has a passion to serve its own community, as well as communities abroad. The nonprofit organization’s sole purpose is to support local and international charities through service projects and scholarships to students.

The Del Mar Rotary Club is one of more than 32,000 Rotary Clubs in 166 countries. Rotary International’s mission is to promote better understanding within the community, in addition to world peace and goodwill.

The club’s outreach and service projects include community, vocational and international avenues of service. Projects range from the final push to eradicate polio from the world, to organizing beach cleanups in Del Mar. Rotarians support open-heart surgeries for children in China, and spend Saturdays with orphans in Tijuana. Interact Clubs at Torrey Pines and Cathedral Catholic high schools teach students about leadership, ethics, community service, world peace and understanding.

Member ages vary widely from those in their 20s, just starting their careers, to folks who have retired or are empty nesters who now find they have the time and desire to give back to their community.
