About Rotary

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.

What makes us different?

Our distinct point of view and approach gives us unique advantages. Our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges in unique ways and we apply leadership and expertise to social issues—and find unique solutions.

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. 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 our 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.

How do we use our funds?

Responsible leadership means more than just doing good work—it means making the most out of every donation we receive.

What causes do we support?

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.
