Rotary International is an organization of service clubs known as Rotary Clubs located all over the world. The stated purpose of the organization is to bring together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. It is a secular organization open to all persons regardless of race, color, creed, gender, or political preference.

The first Rotary Club was formed when attorney Paul P. Harris called together a meeting of business acquaintances in downtown Chicago,  in the Unity Building on Dearborn Street on February 23, 1905.
