The Rotary Club of Portland is one of the largest Rotary Clubs in the world, and the 15th chartered club out of 33,000+ chapters around the globe. You will find a diverse membership dedicated to Service Above Self, a core principle of Rotary that every member supports across our city, around our state, and throughout the world.


Rotary Club of Portland is far more than you can imagine. Our members actively use their influence, professional skills, time and resources to make meaningful change in Portland and internationally. In the process, members develop life-long relationships with each other while serving in our community or overseas.

In fact, the weekly meetings are a time to challenge your thinking and get exposure and learn perspectives from international, national and regional experts on business, economics, politics, environment, healthcare, education, engineering, culture, design, people and more. The real work of the club is done by volunteering with others with a shared passion to improve lives here and abroad. If you’re looking to be part of a group that has the resources to make the world and our city a better place and has fun doing it, then come visit us. We’re interested in new members who believe in Service Above Self. Come join us!


The Rotary Club of Portland is committed to providing a membership environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity.  Each member has the right to participate in a Rotary Club atmosphere that promotes goodwill and prohibits discriminatory practices, including harassment.  The Club expects that all relationships among persons participating in Club activities will be respectful and free of bias, prejudice, and harassment.
