A network of neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.
MISSION & HISTORY.
Originally our club in Hollywood was established in 1925. Taking a deeper dive into the history...
Rotary started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris.
The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.
Over time, Rotary’s reach and vision gradually extended to humanitarian service. Members have a long track record of addressing challenges in their communities and around the world.
WE BELIEVE IN SERVICE ABOVE SELF.
We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
WE ARE PEOPLE OF ACTION
We connect passionate people with diverse perspectives to exchange ideas, forge lifelong friendships, and, above all, take action to change the world.
WE ARE PROBLEM-SOLVERS
Together, we apply our professional experience and personal commitment to tackle our communities’ most persistent problems, finding new, effective ways to enhance health, stability, and prosperity across the globe.
WE ARE OPPORTUNITY-CREATORS
Rotary members look for opportunities to improve our communities today and invest in the next generation for tomorrow.
WE ARE COMMUNITY-BUILDERS
We collaborate with community leaders who want to get to work on projects that have a real, lasting impact on people’s lives.
