What's Rotary?

Rotary is an international membership organization made up of men and women who share a passion for and commitment to enhancing communities and improving lives across the world. Rotary clubs exist in almost every country. Our members help change lives locally and connect with other clubs to work on international projects that address today’s most pressing challenges. Membership provides an opportunity to take action and make a difference. Engaging in this kind of service is personally rewarding and creates lifelong friendships in the process.

Rotary was founded on principles that remain at the heart of the organization today. These principles reflect our core values — integrity, diversity, service, leadership, and fellowship, or friendship.

November:  ROTARY FOUNDATION Month

The Rotary Foundation is Rotary's own charitable fund and is operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes throughout the world. The Foundation was created in 1917 by Rotary International’s sixth president, Arch C. Klumph, as an endowment fund for Rotary “to do good in the world.” It has grown from an initial contribution of $26.50 to more than $1 billion. It is one of the largest and most prestigious international fellowship programs in the world.

In 2016-17, our Rotary Foundation turned "100." That’s a century of Rotary members changing lives and improving communities all over the world.

Through our Foundation, Rotary members have supported thousands of projects to provide clean water, fight disease, promote peace, provide basic education, and grow local economies. We’ve also been a leader in the fight to eradicate polio worldwide.

The Rotary Foundation transforms gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, The Rotary Foundation taps into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into Rotary's humanitarian priorities.

The Rotary Foundation is one of the largest foundations in the world. Annual contributions to the Foundation are invested and every annual giving dollar contributed to the Foundation is available for its programs three years later (actually, 50% of District 5870's contributions are subsequently returned to the District for District-level projects as well as Club-level and local projects). Members of our Club have contributed a cumulative total of $403,839 to The Rotary Foundation (a significant portion of that total has been returned to our Club over the past 20+ years to help fund projects in our area communities).

The mission of the 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.

 


 

It’s holiday time in Texas, and that means NW Austin Rotary Club is once again selling Texas oranges and grapefruit fresh from the Rio Grande Valley. The District Governor has promised delivery of the fruit on (or after) December 9, 2017.

Sponsoring Rotary Scholars

“I am confident that I am demonstrating a commitment to Rotary ideals-furthering peace and cultural tolerance- through the work that I produce.” Alissa Nicole Creamer 

As a Rotary Foundation Scholar Alissa Nicole Creamer got a close- up look at how people recover from the ravages of war. While studying documentary filmmaking in Spain she participated in a project supported by 60 Spanish Rotary Clubs to fund rehabilitation of child victims of land mine explosions. Nearly every day for three months Creamer visited with two Angolan children at a local hospital. She got to know their life stories and now she is telling their story to the world through a documentary film she is directing. 

By sponsoring and hosting Rotary Scholars, Rotarians give the world hope for the future.

 


 

The Six Areas of Focus

For more than 100 years, Rotarians have joined together from all continents, cultures, and industries to take action in our communities and around the world. With a commitment to achieving lasting change, we work together to empower youth, enhance health, promote peace, and most important, advance the community. While Rotarians can serve in countless ways, Rotary has focused its efforts in six areas, which reflect some of the most critical and widespread humanitarian needs: 

• Peace and conflict prevention/resolution 

• Disease prevention and treatment 

• Water and sanitation 

• Maternal and child health 

• Basic education and literacy 

• Economic and community development 

Rotarians planning new service projects are encouraged to consider these areas and the many opportunities for innovative projects.

 


 

Service Above Self

Plagued by famine, the impoverished nation of Niger struggles to feed its citizens. But Rotarians like Ernie and Sally Montagne, of Arizona, USA, are helping to break this cycle of hunger and grinding poverty. During a planning trip to Niger on a Rotary Grant, the Montagnes saw firsthand how The Rotary Foundation’s humanitarian efforts are supporting sustainable projects there. 

“The Rotary Foundation is our vehicle of choice to enable ordinary Rotarians to make a lasting difference in the lives of thousands of villagers in Africa.”

In 2017-18, we’ll answer the question “What is Rotary?” with RI President-elect Ian H.S. Riseley’s theme, Rotary: Making a Difference. “Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.”

 

The heartland of America—from Montana to Texas—has people who give from the heart. This rich land still has people who are homeless, but Rotarians help build houses. This breadbasket of America still has people with food insecurities, but Rotarians serve in soup kitchens, pack backpacks, and stock food pantries. There are people who are abused, or abuse drugs and alcohol, but Rotarians work in shelters, and educate with awareness and treatment campaigns. Rotary Has Heart. Rotarians serve their communities
