So why join Rotary? The primary reasons are to give back to the community (service), to network, to obtain professional development, and to meet new friends.
Rotary Purpose Statement:
Rotary is a place where leaders come together…
to exchange ideas…
and take action…
to make a difference in the world
One of the most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics in the world is the Rotary “4-Way Test.” The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
And in the Rotary of Springfield club we always add a fifth
Will it be FUN?

Fund raising for these projects is done by the Springfield Rotary Foundation, established in July 1971 to “advance local as well as world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty”
