WELCOME TO DISTRICT 5240
Rotary District 5240 is made up of over 3,300 members, from 72 clubs, in 4 different counties within California, United States. We meet regularly to not only form bonds and friendships, but we also strive to improve lives locally and around the world.
 
There have been so many inquiries asking where people can help with the current fire disaster in our beloved District. There are several avenues people can donate money:
  • Ventura County Community Foundation (This is the foundation we worked with last year with the Thomas Fire.)
  • District 5240 Charitable Foundation - If you want to donate to our D5240 Charitable Foundation, send checks to: District 5240 Charitable Foundation, Attn: Barry VanderKelen, Chair, 1212 Marsh St., San Luis Obispo, CA 93401. Write "Fire Relief" in the memo section on the check.
  • In response to the #HillFire and #WoolseyFire, United Way of Ventura County and United Way of Greater Los Angeles have created the Southern California Disaster Relief Fund to support long-term recovery for affected low-income individuals and families. Make a donation online at www.unitedwayla.org/en/give/disaster-relief-fund/ or text ‘UWVC’ at 41444 for Ventura County only.
