There’s nothing else that can. Rotary is a good example of Capitalism serving Society.

Members of Rotary Clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
There are over 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are non-political, non-religious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto “Service above Self”, Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
The Rotary Foundation exists with one aim: “To do Good in the World”. It is the most effective and efficient Charity on Earth because all Administration is done by unpaid Rotarian volunteers. more than 94% of every dollar donated to the Rotary Foundation goes to people in need, mainly in the Third World where the eradication of Polio, provision of clean water supplies and Toilets are three major focus areas at present. Polio Plus has raised billions of dollars to inoculate every child on the planet against polio, so that today only eight polio cases have been reported around the world in 2017. Last year, there were 37, the year before that, 74. In 1985 when this project started there were over 500,000 new cases of Polio every year.
