Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 35,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.

In 2002 a few prominent people of Indian origin, living in Plainsboro, South Brunswick, North Brunswick, Edison, Franklin Park, and North New Jersey decided to charter a new Rotary Club in Central New Jersey with the intention of servicing the local and international community. The club started out with three members and rapidly grew to about more than 25 members living in various parts of the state. Although the club is open to people of all races, color, and religion, most of the current members are people of Indian Origin.

Since its inception, the Rotary Club of Plainsboro has proudly sponsored a number of local and international charitable projects.

The club meets  on Tuesdays from 7.30 to 9.30 PM. Besides working on various humanitarian charitable projects, the club provides an excellent opportunity for networking with the mainstream Indo American community.
