Rotary Four Way Test

Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build good will and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?


Four Avenues of Service

Based on the Object of Rotary, the Four Avenues of Service are Rotary's philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:

  • Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club.
  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
  • Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.
  • International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.

 

 
Our Foundation
The Rotary Foundation transforms donations into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.  During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.  The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting service projects around the world, carried out by 35,000 Rotary  clubs.  Through donations to the Rotary Foundation, we’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases in the world.

The Paul Harris Society recognizes members and friends of the  Rotary Foundation who contribute $1000 annually to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus or approved global grants.  To learn more about the Paul Harris Society, click here.

Polio Plus and the Foundation
Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We've helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. So far, Rotary has contributed more than $1.8 billion toward eradicating the disease worldwide.

Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan.  But it's crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free.  If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,00 children each year.
