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.

What impact can one donation have?

  • $50 can provide clean water to help fight waterborne illness.
  • $500 can launch an antibullying campaign and create a safe environment for children.

The Rotary Foundation Program Expenditures

(All figures are as of 30 June 2019 and in U.S. dollars.)

PolioPlus.

Since 1988, Rotary and its partners have immunized more than 2.5 billion children against polio. As of June 2019, Rotary had committed $2 billion to global polio eradication. The goal is to eliminate the virus in the last three countries where it remains endemic and to keep it from returning anywhere else. In 2018-19, program awards, including PolioPlus Partners grants, totaled $151.2 million.

Rotary Peace Centers.

Each year, the Foundation supports the training of peace fellows at six Rotary Peace Centers, where they earn master’s degrees or professional development certificates. Since 2002-03, 1,284 fellows have graduated from the Peace Centers and are working in more than 116 countries. In 2018-19, 94 fellows from 43 countries began their studies at the Rotary Peace Centers, and program awards for the fellows and centers totaled $5.0 million.

District grants.

District grants support small-scale, short-term projects related to the Foundation’s mission. In 2018-19, the Foundation approved 494 district grants, and program awards totaled $26.3 million.

Global grants.

Global grants fund large-scale international activities with sustainable, measurable results that support Rotary’s six areas of focus. Activities include humanitarian projects, scholarships, and vocational training teams. In 2018-19, the Foundation approved 1,403 global grants, and program awards totaled $86.6 million
