The Object of Rotary

The object of Rotary is the foundation on which the Rotary house is built. This brief statement, 106 words, is a key element of the Rotary International Constitution. It states the essential purpose of the organization - "to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise." Four areas are listed where this ideal of service can be fostered.

First: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service.
Second: High ethical standards in business and profession are recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to server society.
Third: The Application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life.
Fourth: The advancement of international understanding of goodwill, and peace through a world of fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
