The 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:

— The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

— 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;
— The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
— The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of    business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
