Rotary’s motto, “Service Above Self,” traces back to the early days of the organization.  It was adapted from a speech Ben Collins made in 1911 when he declared that the proper way to organize a Rotary club is to live by the principle “Service, Not Self.”  Today the motto plays out in a variety of projects that San Diego Rotary’s 30 Community, Youth, Vocational and International service committees undertake.  Thousands of hours of volunteer time are committed by Rotarians for the benefit of others. Examples include projects benefiting youth, the military, veterans, and seniors in San Diego and Worldwide.  Read more about the Club’s philanthropic projects here… Annual Report_2022-2023
