A special report prepared for Rotary International by the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies found that Rotary members had given nearly 47 million hours of volunteer effort in a typical year. The economic impact of all those hours was estimated conservatively at $850 million a year, if communities had to pay for the services that Rotary volunteers provide.
