Rotary International

Rotary has been in operation for more than 116 years and brings together members who have a passion for serving the community. They are committed to working together to solve real world problems such as literacy, health, peace and access to clean drinking water.

Rotary International brings people together from a range of vocations to enable our core values of service, fellowship, diversity, integrity and leadership.

The first Rotary Club was founded by Paul Harris on February 23, 1905, with the first donation of $26.50 to the Rotary Foundation in 1917, and today brings together 1.2M members from over 35,000 clubs worldwide.

"Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves."

Paul Harris
