Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united world wide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
Rotary is the world's first service club. The first Rotary club was founded in Chicago, Illinois on February 23th 1905.
Rotary is some 1.2 million service minded men and women belonging to more than 28,000 Rotary clubs in virtually every nation in the world.
Rotarians plan and carry out a remarkable variety of humanitarian, educational and cultural exchange programs that touch people's lives in their local communities and our world community.
Rotary is the Rotary Foundation, which each year provides some $90 million for international scholarships, cultural exchanges, and humanitarian projects large and small that improve the quality of life for millions of people. Rotary is widely regarded as the world's largest private provider of international education scholarships.
Rotary is Polio Plus, Rotary's commitment to work with National and International Health organizations on the goal of Polio eradication. More than 2 Billion children in 122 developing countries have been immunized against Polio through Polio Plus grants. There are only four more countries left to immunize, and we intend to eradicate Polio forever within the next 3 to 5 years.
Rotarians meet weekly for fellowship and interesting and informative programs dealing with topics of local and global importance. Membership reflects a wide cross section of community representation.
