The Six Philanthropic Causes Supported by Rotary International

Bruce Weyhrauch

Bruce Weyhrauch, an attorney in private practice in Juneau, Alaska, for nearly three decades, takes an active part in the local community as well as world affairs. For example, Bruce Weyhrauch was a member of his local chapter of Rotary Club International for more than 12 years.

Since its founding in 1907, the Rotary Club has striven to improve lives, build relationships, and create a peaceful world for all citizens, connecting people from all over the world to brainstorm how to make such worthy and lasting changes. Today, over 1.2 million members seek to correct a number of major problems, sorted into six areas of focus.
These six areas are promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, supporting education, saving mothers and children, and growing local economies. Around the world, 35,000 clubs devote their time and effort to giving aid to individuals and groups trying to overcome these challenges.
Promoting peace is perhaps the most difficult of the six. Rotary International trains members how to mediate conflict, as well as to aid refugees fleeing dangerous areas abroad. By addressing causes of conflict, which range from income inequality to ethnic tension, Rotary hopes to help the 65 million people displaced globally because of war or conflict.
