ABOUT THE ROTARY FOUNDATION OF ROTARY INTERNATIONAL
The mission of The Rotary Foundation 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.
Supporting The Rotary Foundation is one of the four pillars of an effective club in the Club Leadership Plan. It is recommended that each club have a club Rotary Foundation committee to develop and implement a plan for supporting the Foundation through program participation and financial contributions.
Clubs are expected to appoint a club Foundation chair and as many subcommittee chairs as are appropriate to the size and membership of the club. Contact your district governor or district Rotary Foundation committee members for more information on how your club can best support the Foundation.
The Rotary Foundation’s programs include:
- Global Scholars
- Peace Scholars
- District Grants
- Global Grants (International Partnerships)
- Polio Eradication
See the Club Rotary Foundation Committee Manual for more information on how your club can support The Rotary Foundation.
The Rotary Foundation Quick Reference Guide is useful in helping new club members learn about Foundation programs and contributions.
