The Rotary Foundation
Did you know that the 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?
What can the Rotary Foundation Do?
Prevent and treat disease.
Rotary clubs around the world are working to strengthen communities by keeping them healthy. Rotary clubs in Wisconsin and Minnesota, USA, obtained a mobile clinic that provides free health care services for people who don’t have health insurance. In Korea, Rotary clubs assist cyclists with partial or complete vision loss.
The Guatemala Literacy Project is working to reverse the country’s low literacy rates and keep children in school.
Grow local economies.
Enterprising women in the far northwest of Uganda, who had lifted their families out of poverty with the support of microloans, created a Rotary club dedicated to empowering other entrepreneurs.
Protect the environment.
Rotary members used Foundation district grants to help support a train tour along the migration route of monarch butterflies from Canada through the United States to Mexico. At train stops, members engaged with communities to raise awareness about how a decline in natural pollinators threatens our global ecosystems, food supplies, and economies.
Provide clean water.
Rotary clubs are working together in Cambodia and Taiwan to provide water purification equipment for floating towns on Tonle Sap Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia.
Please donate online or send your contribution by mail to The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund-SHARE or one of our Annual Fund’s areas of focus. Your gift will support projects like these and make Doing Good in the World possible.
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.
