The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.
Since it was founded more than 100 years ago, the Foundation has spent more than $4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.

TRF distributes a portion of donations made to the Annual Fund to our District to support local Club grants. Only donations that are designated to the Annual Fund qualify to be redistributed to the District / Clubs.

We are proud that 92% of funds are spent on actual program awards and services it delivers.  TRF provides 100% accountability & transparency and has received Charity Navigator's highest level as a 4 star charity.

Our mission
The mission of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International 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.

What impact can one donation have?  

  • For as little as 60 cents, a child can be protected from polio.
  • $50 can provide clean water to help fight waterborne illness.
  • $500 can launch an antibullying campaign and create a safe environment for children.

We know that the RI Foundation is helping Rotarians do good in the world, here are some figures to help put it in perspective:
Five years of global grants by area of focus and total funding
  • Basic education and literacy $53,261,360
  • Community economic development $54,118,305
