Rotary’s logo is a roundel and this symbolises a rotating world.

It reminds Rotarians that we are ‘at work’ all around the world with Rotary clubs bringing together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action.

We are 1.2 million neighbours, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.

Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective.

Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.

What makes us different?

• Our distinct point of view and approach gives us unique advantages.

• We see differently – our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges in unique ways.

• We think differently – we apply leadership and expertise to social issues, and find unique solutions.

• We act responsibly – our passion and perseverance create lasting change.

• We make a difference at home and around the world – our members can be found in your community and across the globe.

How do we work?

Our impact starts with our members—people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities’ toughest challenges.

Their efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world.

Rotary is led by our members – responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organization’s mission and values in their elected roles.
