About Our Club
 
Rotary Club of Silicon Valley Passport is a service club dedicated to improving the lives of others both in our community and around the world. Established in 2016, we are the third Rotary Passport Club formed in the world. The term "passport" refers to the ability to move from club to club, attending the meetings or participating in the activities of other clubs.
 
As a Passport Club (compared to a traditional Rotary club), we offer our members a more FLEXIBLE and broader club experience to accommodate members' busy schedules:
 
  • Two meetings a month (in person / virtual)
  • No attendance requirement
  • Affordable membership dues
  • You pick which projects you want to help. You will be able to choose from projects at other Rotary Clubs in our District, or perhaps some other organization.
  • You can attend any Rotary club's meetings as a visiting Rotarian.
* Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our monthly meetings have been conducted on Zoom. We do not have in person meetings at this time.
 
Contact Us if you need more information about our club and/or would like to attend a meeting.
 
Our Stories
Jeetu Lakhotia (Club President), Mahesh Nihalani (New Channels Chair), Viji Bettadapura (member) and her husband Satya, visited West Valley Community Services in Cupertino on May 6, 2021. They were there to drop off the check from our club that would help support their Back to School program. They were met by Josh Selo, Executive Director and Kohinoor Chakravarty, Director of Development and Communications. The Back to School program provides school-aged children a backpack full of supplies and new clothes for the school year.
 
 
They were also given a tour of their facility. Jeetu said, "We toured the newly opened Food Pantry that provides a wide selection of food to families facing a hunger crisis. The Pantry is setup like a Whole Foods or Safeway style grocery store. Their clients visit the pantry weekly, selecting from a variety of healthy and delicious foods donated by local partners, including Second Harvest Food Bank, Whole Foods, Safeway, Trader Joe's, Marina Foods, Sprouts, Target, Creekside Farmers' Market, and other local vendors. We also saw the mobile food pantry service that operates at various locations in San Jose, Cupertino, Los Gatos and Saratoga once a week. The plan is to bring food closer to the clients that cannot be at the food pantry service due to lack of transportation or for any other reasons."
