The Rotary Club of St. Augustine was formed in January 1967. After operating as a provisional Club for 18 months, we were chartered as Rotary Club No. 94, on June 26, 1968. We received our chartered certificate from Rotary International on October 4, 1968. From our inception to date, we have provided extensive humanitarian and charitable services to the people of Trinidad & Tobago and world-wide through our annual contributions to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.

The Club was incorporated by an Act of Parliament in April 1993 and we are a registered Charitable Organization.
The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

2. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

3. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

4. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

This objective is further set against the "Rotarian four-way test", used to see if a planned action is compatible with the Rotarian spirit. The test was developed by Rotarian and entrepreneur Herbert J. Taylor during the Great Depression as a set of guidelines for restoring faltering businesses and was adopted as the standard of ethics by Rotary in 1942. It is still seen as a standard for ethics in business management:

Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build good will and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
