What is the Rotary Foundation

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 Rotarian’s who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarian’s to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.

  • In 1917, Rotary International President Arch C. Klumph proposed an endowment "for the purpose of doing good in the world." His vision became The Rotary Foundation.– Past RI President Arch C. Klumph

  • When you give to The Rotary Foundation, you support Rotary's work across the world and help ensure our future. You can choose where to direct your donation and how you wish to give. Recognition is offered at many giving levels.– The Rotary Foundation

  • Rotarians have helped immunize more than 2 billion children against polio in 122 countries. For as little as $0.60, a child can be protected against this crippling disease for life.– Polio Eradication
