Rotary, along with our partners, has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, but we need your help.
The Rotary Foundation relies on giving to be able to do its great work - individual, club, district, corporate, philanthropic, bequests, and more!
There are many options to choose from when considering a gift to The Rotary Foundation.
Global Grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary’s areas of focus.
District Grants fund small-scale, short-term activities that address needs in your community and communities abroad. Each district chooses which activities it will fund with these grants.
Each year, Rotary selects up to 100 professionals from around the world to receive fellowships to study at one of our peace centers.
Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops leaders who become catalysts for peace and conflict prevention and resolution.
The District Stewardship Committee is responsible for ensuring the careful management of Rotary Foundation grant funds and for educating Rotarians on proper and effective grant management.
The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace.
Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.
Strong financial oversight, a stellar charity rating, and a unique funding model mean that we make the very most of your contributions.
Give and become a part of Rotary’s life-changing work!
The District Director acts on behalf of the District Governor in leading District Foundation committees as they engage clubs and communities in Foundation programs as well as encouraging clubs and Rotarians to both physically and financially support Foundation activities.
