A service organization. People of action. Service above self. The Four-Way Test.
Rotary is both an international force of good and a local network of neighbors helping neighbors. Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million people of action – neighbors, friends, problem-solvers & leaders – who come together to make positive, lasting change at home and abroad. Rotarians have used their passion, energy, and intelligence for sustainable projects for more than 110 years. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.
Service Above Self
Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 35,000+ clubs work together to:
- Fight disease
- Save mothers and children
- Support education
- Grow local economies
Turn your passion for change into action through Rotary. Whether it’s as a member, partner, or supporter, you can be a part of the solution.
Rotarians demonstrate good character, integrity, and leadership; have a good reputation in their business, profession, and community; and are willing to make a difference in their community and around the world. We live, work and serve our community and world according to the Four-Way Test.
The Four-Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do:
- Is it the truth?
- Is it fair to all concerned?
- Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
- Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
