The Rotary Foundation

The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is a not-for-profit corporation that promotes world understanding through international humanitarian service programs and educational and cultural exchanges.  It is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and others who share its vision of a better world.  Since 1947, the Foundation has awarded more than US$1.1 billionin humanitarian and educational grants, which are initiated and administered by local Rotary clubs and districts.
The Foundation was created in 1917 by Rotary International’s sixth president, Arch C. Klumph, as an endowment fund for Rotary “to do good in the world.”  It has grown from an initial contribution of US$26.50  to more than US$1 billion in total contributions.  Its event-filled history is a story of Rotarians learning the value of service to humanity.
Foundation programs fund International, Rotary club, and district projects to improve the quality of life, providing health care, clean water, food, education, and other essential needs primarily in the developing world.  One of the major Humanitarian Programs is PolioPlus, which seeks to eradicate the polio virus worldwide.
Through its Educational Programs, the Foundation provides funding for some 1,200 students to study abroad each year.  Grants are also awarded to university teachers to teach in developing countries and for exchanges of business and professional people.  Former participants in the Foundation’s programs have the opportunity to continue their affiliation with Rotary as Foundation Alumni.
