As 2021 comes to an end, it's important to look back at everything we have accomplished together this year.
Rotary is about the power to connect, partner and create change. Our work is methodical and steady, generating long-term results, like our decades-long commitment to eradicate polio. When urgent needs arise, Rotarians are People of Action — whether it’s by providing food and shelter after disasters or getting protective equipment to health care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rotary’s 2021 Annual Report highlights how members and participants like you helped Rotary increase our impact, expand our reach, enhance participant engagement and increase our ability to adapt.

The annual report is also an excellent resource for showing prospective members as well as current members Rotary’s global impact. It not only gives real-life examples of how we are supporting the four pillars of our Action Plan but provides simple suggestions about how we can further support them.
The 2021 Annual Report includes information on:
  • 93 Rotary Fellowships allowed 60,000 participants to connect and make a difference
  • 117 Rotary Peace Fellows studied at Rotary Peace Centers
  • Over $25 million was awarded in grants to support COVID-19 related service projects
