Rotary Foundation

What is Foundation?

The Rotary Foundation is Rotary's own charity.

It is supported by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation and generous donations from the general public who share its vision of a better world.  

The aim 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. 

It has become one of the foremost non-governmental foundations with the educational support programme being the largest private scholarship endowment in the world. 

It is said that every minute of every day Rotary will touch the lives of millions somewhere in the world.

In our club the main fundraising event of the Committee is the annual Duck Race, and money also comes in through the sale of Christmas Cards and Calendars.
