What is Rotary?

Rotary members are people of action who come together to build connections, solve problems, and create lasting change that makes the world a better place for future generations.

The Rotary Club of Hillsboro joins a global network of 35,678 clubs and 1.195 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers. Each one of us is but one of tens of thousands of Rotarians that come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.

We connect people. Through Rotary clubs, people from all continents and cultures unite to exchange ideas and form friendships and professional connections while making a difference in their backyards and around the world.

We think differently. Our members’ diverse and multidisciplinary perspectives help us see challenges in unique ways. Members apply their leadership and expertise toward addressing social issues – and finding unique solutions.

We solve problems. For more than 110 years, we’ve bridged cultures and connected continents to champion peace, fight illiteracy and poverty, promote clean water and sanitation, save mothers and children, grow economies, and prevent diseases.

We transform communities. Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into club projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, long-term solutions to the issues facing our communities.

We transform ourselves. Through Rotary, our members are exposed to new thoughts, professions, and opportunities to broaden their perspectives. From weekly meetings and club projects to fundraisers and networking events, our members develop skills that help make them better, individuals, community leaders, internationalists, and humanitarians.


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