Our Rotary Foundation
It's a Magical Way to Make a Difference

Posted by PDG Bill Mulkey, Club Fund Development and Recognitions Chair, Club Rotary Foundation Director

The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past 103 years, the Foundation has spent over $4 billion on life changing, sustainable projects. With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world.

Our mission:  The mission of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

Why should I donate to The Rotary Foundation? Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most. More than 90% of donations go directly to supporting our service projects around the world.

How does The Rotary Foundation use donations? Our 36,000 + clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes. With donations like yours, we have wiped out 99.9% of all polio cases. Your donation also trains future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthens local economies.

What impact can one donation have? It can save a life. A child can be protected from polio with as little as 60 cents. Our partners make your donation go even further. For every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $2.
