At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.
 
We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, colour, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs.
 
Recognizing that individuals from certain groups have historically experienced barriers to membership, participation, and leadership, we commit to advancing equity in all aspects of Rotary, including in our community partnerships, so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive.
 
We believe that all people hold visible and invisible qualities that inherently make them unique, and we strive to create an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and belong.
 
In line with our value of integrity, we are committed to being honest and transparent about where we are in our DEI journey as an organization, and to continuing to learn and do better.

Most Rotarians know about the Centurion and Paul Harris Fellow recognition programs for individuals who make donations to The Rotary Foundation.  But, did you know about the new recognition programs that honour Rotary Clubs for making donations? 
The idea is to encourage your club to allocate a share of your club’s fund-raising project income to Rotary’s own charity – The Rotary Foundation – in addition to the special causes that you are passionate about. 
The Club Giving Awards honour the Clubs that donated at least $5000 to The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund, and/or that donated at least $2200 to the End Polio Now Fund.
For the year ending June 2021, the Awardees were:
 
Lower Blue Mountains
Northbridge
Chatswood Roseville
Lane Cove
Carlingford
West Pennant Hills & Cherrybrook
Ryde
Mosman
Lower Blue Mountains
Northbridge
Chatswood Roseville
North Ryde
The Hills-Kellyville
Nepean
Turramurra
Pennant Hills
Blackheath
 
As you plan your club’s fund-raisers for this Rotary year, we ask you to set aside 10% of the amount raised for these two Rotary Foundation programs.  The Annual Fund is our “seed bank” that returns money to our district for club-directed projects.  The Polio Fund is vital to ensure that polio is finally eradicated from the planet.

Rotary is a worldwide organisation of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are non-political, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto “Service above Self”, Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.

OBJECT OF ROTARY

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

•FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

•SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

•THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;

•FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

 

THE FOUR-WAY TEST

Of the things we think, say & do:

  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
