Mission & objectives

imageThe Rotary Club of Woden members are united in fellowship, to provide humanitarian service to our community, encourage high ethical standards and to advance world understanding and peace.


The mission of the Rotary Club of Woden Inc, along with Rotary Clubs worldwide, is to:

  • provide humanitarian service to other
  • to recognize the worthiness of all occupations
  • to promote high ethical standards in our occupation and our workplace
  • to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through its fellowship of men and women who are leaders in their occupation and community

Woden Rotary seeks to achieve this through:


Our Club conducts its weekly meetings, so that they are a source of pleasure, education and information to our members who come from a diverse range of occupations and community backgrounds.
We believe that individual efforts focus on individual needs, but combined efforts serve humanity.
The power of combined efforts knows no limitation, multiplies resources, and broadens our lives and perspectives.
Fellowship leads to tolerance and transcends racial, national, and other boundaries.


We believe that our service activities and programs bring about greater world understanding and peace.
Service is a major element of our mission.
Through the plans and actions of individual clubs, we create a culture of service throughout our organization that provides unparalleled satisfaction for those who serve.


Our Club carefully selects projects of a type, size and duration that :

  • contribute to and fall within our mission
  • may be local, national or international
  • our members support and enjoy participating in
  • are visible to and valued by the community
  • our Club can readily manage on its own or through its access to the wider Rotary community and which where possible involve the recipients


Our Clubundertakes low risk ventures to raise funds that:

  • have an element of fellowship
  • give an opportunity to involve other groups
  • widen our recognition in the community.

Core values

Rotary's core values represent the guiding principles of the organization's culture, including what guides members' priorities and actions within the organization.
Values are an increasingly important component in strategic planning because they drive the intent and direction of the organization's leadership.
As Rotarians, we are leaders in implementing our core values reflected in the Object of Rotary and The Four-Way Test that we use in our daily lives.
These core values inspire us to foster and support the ideal of service for developing and maintaining integrity in human relations.


We believe Rotary unifies all people internationally behind the ideal of service.
We encourage diversity of vocations within our membership and in our activities and service work.
A club that reflects its business and professional community is a club with a key to its future.


We are committed to and expect accountability from our leaders and fellow members, both in the results of our efforts and in the process we use to accomplish our goals.
We adhere to high ethical and professional standards in our work and personal relationships.
We are fair and respectful in our interactions, and we conscientiously steward the resources entrusted to us.


We are a global fellowship of individuals who are leaders in their fields of endeavor.
We believe in the importance of leadership development and in leadership as a quality of our members.

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service

2. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society

3. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life

4. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

The Four Way Test
