The Rotary Foundation (TRF) transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.
The Rotary Foundation's mission is to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace. Rotary Foundation grants (1) promote peace, (2) fight disease, (3) provide clean water and sanitation, (4) sustain mothers and children, (5) improve education, and (6) strengthen local economies. On July 1, 2021, supporting the environment will be added as a 7th Area of Focus.
The Foundation is a worldwide leader in the efforts to eradicate polio through its partnership in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI). Since 1988, Rotary and its partners in the GPEI have immunized over 3 billion children, reducing the incidence of polio by 99.9 percent and eradicating it from all but two countries. Rotary has contributed more than $2.1 billion and thousands of volunteer hours to eradication efforts. The Foundation also funds training of peacemakers through the Rotary Peace Center program. Most recently, Rotary's Disaster Response Grants are making it possible for Rotary members to respond effectively to local recovery efforts as they unfold, and COVID-19 was recently added as an eligible activity.
Strong financial oversight, a stellar charity rating, and a unique funding model mean that TRF makes the very most of your contribution. Give and become a part of Rotary’s life-changing work!
The collective leadership and expertise of 1.2 million members help tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges, locally and globally. We are united by common values and vision for the future as we sharpen our focus with targeted specific causes that will reach communities most in need.
