Give the gift of Rotary
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people — children, families, and entire communities — benefit from projects funded by The Rotary Foundation.
Although Rotary gives back in countless ways, we focus our service efforts in six areas: promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies.
You can help us continue to create positive, lasting change with a gift to The Rotary Foundation.
What your gift supports
$10 Mosquito bed net
Bed nets provide a safe, peaceful night’s rest in countries like Uganda, where malaria is a major health concern.
$25 School uniform
Succeeding in school starts with dressing the part. The gift of a school uniform can open the doors to education for a child.
$50 Water filter
In rural Guatemala, deadly waterborne diseases are common. Personal water filters offer simple, sustainable access to clean water.
$85 Box of purple markers
Purple markers are used to mark the pinkie fingers of children who receive the polio vaccine, helping health workers identify children who still need to be immunized.
$100 Folding walker
Walkers and wheelchairs can offer people with physical disabilities mobility, improved health, access to education, and economic security.
$100 Sewing machine
Sewing machines are used to teach entrepreneurs the skills they need to launch a business. Microloans and training ensure the business’s sustainability.
$250 Ceramic washbasin
Ceramic washbasins give mothers living in domestic-violence shelters the means to bathe and care for their babies and families.
$500 Dairy cow
In addition to providing dairy products, cows produce calves that farmers in Cambodia can sell to support their families.

There are two types of ancillary funds that fall within a DGR category:
private ancillary funds
public ancillary funds
