This Week's Program
The Rotary Foundation Month with Kim Walden, Fran Milberg & Ray McKemie

The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.

During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.

With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world.

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.

Why should I donate to The Rotary Foundation?

Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting our service projects around the world.

How does The Rotary Foundation use donations?

Our 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes. With donations like yours, we’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases. Your donation also trains future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthens local economies.

What impact can one donation have?

It can save a life. A child can be protected from polio with as little as 60 cents. Our partners make your donation go even further. For every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $2.

Why am I a Rotarian?

Rotary has introduced me to so many wonderful people, many of which have become my closest friends. I enjoy the fellowship, meetings, and projects that we do in our community, district and the world...Service Above Self. When help is needed, Rotarians are there! I love the fact we offer an invocation, stand for the pledge of allegiance to our flag and sing God Bless America at each meeting. I was invited to join Rotary in October 2011; it was the best decision that I have made in my professional life! I am a Rotarian because I believe in service and giving of myself in service.
