What is Rotary?

Rotary is made up of three parts: our clubs, Rotary International, and The Rotary Foundation. Together, we work to make lasting change in our communities and around the world. Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.

The Rotary Club of Hillsboro joins a global network of 35,000 clubs and 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers. We are but one of millions of Rotarians that come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.

“Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves.”
