#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.

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 see differently: Our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges in unique ways.

- We think differently: We apply leadership and expertise to social issues—and find unique solutions.

- 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.

#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.

Our #Structure

Rotary is made up of three parts: at the heart of Rotary are our clubs, that are supported by Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation.

#RotaryClubs bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action.

#RotaryInternational supports Rotary clubs worldwide by coordinating global programs, campaigns, and initiatives.

#TheRotaryFoundation uses generous donations to fund projects by Rotarians and our partners in communities around the world. As a nonprofit, all of the Foundation's funding comes from voluntary contributions made by Rotarians and friends who share our vision of a better world.

Together, Rotary clubs, Rotary International, and The Rotary Foundation work to make lasting improvements in our communities and around the world.

Our #partners

When Rotary partners with other organizations, we multiply the impact made by either group on their own. We call this “the Rotary effect.” From local food banks to global humanitarian organizations, we work with a wide variety of partners, including:

✓ Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
✓ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
✓ Global FoodBanking Network
✓ Shelter Box
✓ UNESCO-IHE
✓ UNICEF
✓ United Nations
✓ World Health Organization.

Our #leadership

What does it take to be a leader with Rotary? Integrity, expertise, and a commitment to service—all the qualities that make Rotary members extraordinary. We look for these qualities in all our leadership positions, including our elected President and Board of Directors, who lead Rotary International, our appointed Trustee Chair and Board of Trustees, who run The Rotary Foundation, and our General Secretary and executive staff, who provide long-term oversight of the organization. Members of each Rotary club elect their own leadership.

#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.
