What is Rotary?

Rotary is a global network of 1.2 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.

Rotary clubs address critical issues in our communities and abroad by providing health care and medical supplies, clean water, food, job training, youth development, and education to millions of people in need. Rotarians support a wide array of causes in our neighborhoods and around the globe, providing hands-on volunteer opportunities for our members to make a direct impact on our local and international communities.

We are proud of our reputation as people of action. We use our passion, energy, and intelligence create and follow through on sustainable projects that we know will make a difference in the lives of others. From literacy and peace, to water and health, we are always working to better our world.

Rotarians apply the 4-Way Test when faced with an opportunity/project:

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?
