We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.

Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.

What makes us different?

  • Our distinct point of view and approach gives us unique advantages:

  • We act responsibly: Our passion and perseverance create lasting change.
  • We make a difference at home and around the world: Our members can be found in your community and across the globe.
  • Rotary has contributed more than US$1.5 billion dollars and committed countless volunteer hours to fight the disease.
  • As the volunteer arm of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, polio eradication is Rotary’s top philanthropic goal. We were the catalyst to the effort.
  • Rotary’s chief role is fundraising, advocacy, raising awareness and mobilizing volunteers.
  • Rotary’s involvement started with a successful pilot project to immunize children in the Philippines in 1979.
  • Since 1985, polio eradication has been Rotary’s flagship project, with members donating time and money to help immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries.

How do we work?

Our impact starts with our members—people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities’ toughest challenges. Their efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world.

Rotary is led by our members—responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organization’s mission and values in their elected roles.

How did we get here?

We’ve been making history and bringing the world closer together for over 100 years. Since forming in 1905, we’ve taken on some of the world’s toughest challenges and helped a wide range of international and service organizations— from the UN to Easter Seals—get started.

What causes do we support?

We have identified specific causes to target to maximize our local and global impact. At the same time, we understand that each community has its own unique needs and concerns. Through our network of resources and partners, we help clubs focus their service efforts in promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies.
