Our Rotary Foundation Grants
Did you know that our Rotary Foundation is recognized as one of the most effective and well-managed charitable organizations in the world, with 12 consecutive four-star ratings from Charity Navigator and an A-plus rating from CharityWatch? Much of what we do, we accomplish with the support of grants from our Rotary Foundation. Our Rotary Foundation is funded by Rotarians and non Rotarians alike. We have been a major driver in: increasing child and adult literacy; providing sanitation and clean water; supporting our environment; disease prevention; economic development; supporting maternal and child health; and peace. These are the seven areas of focus for Rotary World Wide.
