About

The Rotary Structure Rotary is made up of three parts. At the heart of Rotary are our clubs, which are supported by Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation.

  • Rotary clubs bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action.
  • Rotary International supports Rotary clubs worldwide by coordinating global programs, campaigns, and initiatives.
  • The Rotary Foundation, as a non-profit, uses generous donations from Rotarians and friends who share our vision of a better world to fund projects by Rotarians and our partners in communities around the world.

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

The History of Rotary International Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.

Our commitment to service is ongoing. We began our fight against polio in 1979 with a project to immunize 6 million children in the Philippines. Today, polio remains endemic in only two countries, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Africa was declared wild-polio-free this year– that’s down from 125 cases in 1988. Rotary is dedicated to seven areas of focus:
1. Promoting peace; 2. Fighting disease; 3. Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene; 4. Saving mothers and children; 5. Growing local economies; 6. Basic education and literacy; and 7. Supporting the environment With every project, we are changing the world for the better.
We are People of Action! We are Rotarians! Learn More about our Bridge the Digital Divide Campaign!
