The Rotary (International) Foundation (TRF)

The Rotary Foundation (this is the Rotary International Foundation, not the club level) transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.

Strong financial oversight, a stellar charity rating, and a unique funding model mean that we make the very most of your contribution. Give and become a part of Rotary’s life-changing work!

Our 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable humanitarian service projects. Using donations like yours, we’ve wiped out 99 percent of all polio cases. Your donations train future peacemakers, support clean water, and strengthen local economies.

You may DONATE to The Rotary Foundation through MyRotary (see top line of our Home page).

We encourage Every Rotarian Every Year giving $100 to The Rotary Foundation.  A portion of these monies return to our district which funds our District Grants. We apply for a District Grant every year to supplement funds for a service project.
