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"
From the number one goals of the eradication of polio to disaster recovery
worldwide, the programs and grants of the Rotary Foundation are changing

clean water, improve the environment, or provide scholarships to educate
the next generation.
