President John Porro welcomes you to the Rotary Club of Coral Gables.  The Rotary Club of Coral Gables was chartered in 1946, and is one of 32,000 Rotary clubs with 1.2 million members in over 200 countries. Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in their local communities and around the world.
The Rotary motto is Service Above Self.

All Rotary Clubs engage in fund raising for local and international service projects and support The Rotary Foundation. Since 1947, The Rotary Foundation has awarded more than US$1.1 billion in grants, initiated and administered by local Rotary clubs. Rotary is best known for Polio-Plus, the 20+ year program to eradicate polio worldwide. Since the program began, 2 billion children have been immunized and polio has declined 99%.
