Connecting for Good - Service Above Self


Seattle Rotary creates strong relationships, informs understanding, and serves to resolve critical community needs.

A Powerful Force For Good

Of thousands of Rotary clubs in the world today, Seattle was number four. It’s a legacy that our business and community leaders take seriously, gathering weekly to manifest the Rotarian ideals of friendship, fellowship, and service. As one of the world’s largest Rotary clubs, we can and do make big things happen - and you can help us achieve even more. 

Service Above Self: Our History, Our Future

For the past 100 years, the Rotary Club of Seattle has played an instrumental role in helping to develop the international organization and to meet the needs of deserving people in our community and elsewhere. For one, we pioneered the ideal of service as a core Rotary value. We also led the way in sharing Rotary locally, regionally, and across the Pacific. Above all else, Seattle #4 has always exemplified the ideals of community service.

Quality Membership

Quality of membership has always been of prime importance to Seattle Rotary. We have consistently sought out leaders in a wide variety of business professions throughout the Seattle area. Today, we work proactively to make sure our membership represents the diversity of men and women in positions of leadership in the Seattle community.
