Foundation Resources

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.


Our team of experienced Rotarians is here to help you reach your fundraising and grant goals. We are able to assist with any challenges you may have with The Rotary Foundation. We can provide you with easy access to useful resources, speakers, million-dollar dinners, END POLIO NOW celebrations, fund-raisers and endowment, and major gift opportunities.


We help with District and Global Grant applications and assist with Community Assessment plans. Let us help facilitate your District’s Strategic Plan to work with The Rotary Foundation. We offer help in training DRFC members and club Rotary Foundation Chairs. We can help in sharing best practices with our knowledge of how our Zone’s 30 Districts operate.

The Rotary Foundation 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!
