Rotary International has a membership of over 1,000,000 people worldwide, and is able to be a considerable force for good. Rotarians give service in their local communities and on a national and international scale. They also raise funds for local and international projects, and contribute to their own charity, The Rotary Foundation (TRF).
The Rotary Foundation then makes available grants to the donor Rotary clubs for larger projects, sometimes matching the money raised locally by their donor clubs. The Rotary motto is “Service above Self”.
