Rotary Values & Mission
The collective leadership and expertise of our 1.2 million members helps us tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges, locally and globally. We are united by common values and vision for the future as we sharpen our focus with targeted specific causes that will reach communities most in need.
As an international organization, we direct our efforts in six areas of service to enhance our local and global impact. Our most successful and sustainable projects and activities tend to fall within the following areas:
- Promoting peace
- Fighting disease
- Providing clean water
- Saving mothers and children
- Supporting education
- Growing local economies
Guiding our values is the Rotary Four-Way Test of the things we think, say and do. The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
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?

Frequent Questions about Rotary Membership
One of the many benefits of your local Rotary club is membership. Rotarians generally meet once per week to share community news, information about club projects and to host a club program designed to educate and inform members about the local community. We recommend every Rotarian attends each weekly meeting, however, we do realize that prior commitments prevent perfect attendance. As such, we have made it convenient for you to attend another club’s meeting in order to make up for missing your meeting. A Rotarian who attends at least 50% of the club’s weekly meetings during the year will remain in good standing.
While the only time requirement is attendance at our weekly meetings, we do ask you to participate in at least one of our community service projects throughout the year as a way to give back to our community. We also have fellowships at least once a year to relax and enjoy social events with friends and family.
