The Rotary 4-Way Test

In 1932, Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor, who went on to be a president of Rotary International, took on the task of salvaging the nearly bankrupt Club Aluminium Company.

Four-Way Test CoinHerb felt that to succeed, they had to be morally and ethically strong. One morning he wrote down twenty-four words that became the guiding principles by which his firm would do business.

Those words became known as the “4-Way Test” and brought Club Aluminium out of the red in five years. In January1943, Rotary International adopted the 4-Way Test as a code of ethics – a call to moral excellence – for all Rotarians.

The 4-Way Test, which has been translated into more than 100 languages, obligates every Rotarian to apply four tests to all that they think, say, and do:

  1. It is the TRUTH?
  2. It is FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
