About the Rotary

Rotary is a global network of 1.4 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

We connect passionate people with diverse perspectives to exchange ideas, forge lifelong friendships, and, above all, take action to change the world, starting with the communities in which we live and work.

We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves.  – Paul Harris

That commitment endures today through an organization that remains truly international. Only 16 years after being founded, Rotary had grown to clubs on six continents. Today members span the globe, working collectively to solve some of our world’s most challenging problems.
