4-way Test

From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.

This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. It asks the following four questions:

"Of the things we think, say or do:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

End Polio Now-- We are very Close


  

Rotary started work on world wide eradication of Polio in 1985. Already over 1.5 Million lives have been saved. Rotary donates about $50 Million dollars to this program each year. Since 1985 Rotary has donated over $2.1 Billion to fight Polio. This year only Afghanistan and Pakistan still have some reported Polio infections. In 1985 there were over 1,000 new cases of Polio per day. Last year there were less than 400 new cases worldwide. And even with the Pandemic the # of new cases in 2020 was less than 2019. So far over 3 Billion children in 122 countries have been vaccinated for Polio.
