What is Rotary?
Rotary is a worldwide network of over 1 million men and women who join forces in order to make positive, lasting change in communities locally and nationally. Rotary is where dedicated men and women who share a passion for community service and friendship, share ideas and take action.
Service Above Self – Four-Way Test
In 1932, Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor created The Four-Way Test. The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and non-sectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships, and has been translated into more than 100 languages.
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?
Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever:
- Promoting peace
- Fighting disease
- Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
- Saving mothers and children
- Supporting education
- Growing local economies
