The Rotary Foundation

The mission of The Rotary Foundation 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.

The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

To realize their vision of a better world, Rotarians, through the programs of The Rotary Foundation, offer Humanitarian Grants, World Peace Fellowships, Global Grant Scholarships, and Vocational Training Teams. Rotarians and The Rotary Foundation also have led the fight to eradicate Polio from the face of the earth.
