Who we are
Founded on March 13, 1923, The Rotary Club of Hillsboro, Oregon has grown to become a community of active professionals who are passionate about service and global citizenship. We provide professionals in the greater Hillsboro area an opportunity to serve their community, network, meet new amazing friends, and have fun!
Service Above Self
Hillsboro Rotary Club is a service-oriented club. The professionals that make up our membership are passionate about serving their local, and global communities. In Rotary language, Hillsboro members put ‘Service Above Self’. The members of the Rotary Club of Hillsboro participate in service projects in their greater community, as well as internationally, based on the interest of members. Examples of service projects include our Adopt-a-Park project at Rood Bridge, being involved with HomePlate by donating and serving food at the youth homeless center, giving our time at Thanksgiving to join the Meals on Wheels’ Donate Dinner drive, repairing and donating gently used bikes to low-income children, purchasing new textbooks and graphing calculators for local schools, and donating text books to schools in Uganda and the Philippines.
Being a Rotarian also offers members the opportunity to travel to foreign countries. By teaming up with local Rotary clubs in a particular foreign country, the Rotary Club of Hillsboro is able to leverage its resources and provide essential services to individuals in that community. For example, Hillsboro Rotarians have built clean and sustainable water systems for two villages in Peru. We have also worked in health clinics in Africa to distribute Polio vaccinations as part of Rotary International’s End Polio Now project to eradicate polio.
Hillsboro Rotary Club Meetings
Each week, Hillsboro Rotary hosts an informative speaker, who presents a topic of interest to the Rotary members. Hillsboro Rotarians pride themselves on creating a fun environment that encourages a dynamic and creative energy.
