Welcome to RC Baden

Rotary was founded in the USA in 1905 by the lawyer Paul Harris. In Europe, the first Rotary Club was founded in Madrid in 1921, and just 4 years later, in 1925, the Rotary Club (RC) Vienna was founded, bringing the Rotary idea to Austria for the first time. Just 5 years later, in 1930, the RC Vienna was the sponsoring club of the RC Baden bei Wien, the tenth Rotary Club to be founded in Austria.

On June 25, 1930, the RC Baden was founded as member no. 3353 of Rotary International with the help of the sponsor club RC Wien and the international secretariat in Zurich.

Since its foundation in 1930, social projects with a total value of at least € 1.37 million have been supported, which, valorized according to LHKI (38) the "cost of living index for a 4-person working class family, base 1938" (Statistik Austria), corresponds to a present value of at least € 2.64 million (as of 2021).
