We are a 1.2 million member group of neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. Our differing occupations, cultures, countries, and backgrounds give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable. We apply leadership and expertise to social issues to find unique solutions. Our passion and perseverance create lasting changes.
Our impact starts with our members- people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities' toughest challenges. All efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and the Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work that our members and partners around the world can benefit from. Rotary is led by our members who help to carry forward our organization's mission and values in their elected roles.
Rotary started over 100 years ago back in 1905. We have 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 to Gift of Live.
We have identified specific causes to target to maximize our local and global impact. 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.
