The Rotary Foundation
Rotary is a huge organization, but the majority of the good work that is done across the globe and here locally is accomplished through grants from the Rotary Foundation.
Founded in 1917 at the Atlanta, Georgia Rotary International Convention with $26.50 the Foundation has spent over $3 billion on life-changing sustainable projects.
A donation to the Foundation 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.
Rotary's 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six areas of focus.
The Foundation has the highest rating of 4 stars from Charity Navigator and was awarded the 2016 World's Outstanding Foundation by the Association of Fundraising Professionals at the 2017 conference.
