Rotary members unite at home and across the globe to put our experience and knowledge to work tackling our most pressing challenges. We focus our efforts in six areas: promoting peace, preventing diseases, providing access to clean water and sanitation, enhancing maternal and child health, improving basic education and literacy, and helping communities develop.
We are especially dedicated to ending polio in our lifetimes. Rotary members have persevered in this fight since 1979 and have now helped eradicate polio in all but three countries worldwide.
When you give to Rotary, you support the work we do in your community and around the world. We are a responsible organization that uses nearly 90% of our funding for program expenses.
We use our knowledge of local issues to identify areas of need, then apply our expertise and diverse perspectives to the problem. Rotary members are most likely at work in your community right now feeding the hungry, tutoring children, maintaining parks, and more. You can help.
From community-based groups who team with their local Rotary club to global organizations who work with us on long-term projects, we can make an even bigger difference when we work together.
We team with partners ranging from local food banks to the United Nations to expand the reach and impact of our work. If you work with an organization that would like to partner with Rotary, please get in touch.
