What is Rotary, Anyway?

Rotary is a global network of over 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers in over 200 countries who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Solving real problems takes commitment and vision. For more than 115 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world and our community, and we stay committed to the end.

 

Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 35,000+ clubs work together to:

  • Promote peace
  • Fight disease
  • Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  • Save mothers and children
  • Support education
  • Grow local economies

The Four Way Test

 

The Four Way Test was introduced in Rotary way back in 1933 by Herbert J. Taylor. It still guides us in our actions and decisions today. 

 

Of the things we think, say, or do,

  1. Is it the truth?

  2. Is it fair to all concerned?

  3. Will it build good will and better relationships?

  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Rotary welcomes people of all backgrounds, cultures, experiences, and identities.

  • Rotary strives for the fair treatment, opportunity, and advancement of all Rotary participants.

Rotary is working to create experiences where all people feel welcomed, respected, and valued. Rotary strives for the fair treatment, opportunity, and advancement of all Rotary participants. We recognize this is always a work in progress.
