BELIEVE THAT IT STARTS WITH A COMMITMENT TO
SERVICE ABOVE SELF
Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change —

What Is Rotary?
Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders spread throughout 34,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries.
Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, share the main objective of service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
The Story of Rotary
Rotary founder Paul Harris said he never imagined that his oasis of friendship and service in a single city would grow into a global force for improving people’s lives.
But that is what Rotary is today…

Avenues of Service
We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.
