What Is Rotary?

A snapshot of who we are.

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are non political, non religious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. Members are both male and female and of all ages.

As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.

Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland has over 55,000 members in 1840 clubs.

Rotarians are encouraged to apply the four way test to all the things they think say or do:

  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
