Rotary is made up of three parts: at the heart of Rotary are our clubs, who are supported by Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation.
Rotary clubs bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action.
Rotary International supports Rotary clubs worldwide by coordinating global programs, campaigns, and initiatives.
The Rotary Foundation uses generous donations to fund projects by Rotarians and our partners in communities around the world. As a non-profit, all of the Foundation's funding comes from voluntary contributions made by Rotarians and friends who share our vision of a better world.
Together, Rotary clubs, Rotary International, and The Rotary Foundation work to make lasting improvements in our communities and around the world.  Supporting The Rotary Foundation is one of the essential elements of an effective club.  The Rotary Club of St. John’s Northwest supports the Rotary Foundation both through financial contributions and through program participation.
Rotary members unite at home and across the globe to put our experience and knowledge to work tackling our most pressing challenges. We focus our efforts in six areas: promoting peace, preventing diseases, providing access to clean water and sanitation, enhancing maternal and child health, improving basic education and literacy, and helping communities develop.
The world-wide eradication of polio has been a long-term objective of Rotary Clubs around the world, and we are now very close to achieving this goal.  According to the World Health Organization polio is now endemic in only three countries in the world.  Rotary Clubs, in partnership with the Bill Gates Foundation, are making a difference here.   Please click here to learn more about the fight to end Polio.
