Rotary Foundation

The Rotary Foundation is consistently rated as one of the best charities in the world for demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to transparency and accountability.



Rotary Foundation History

In 1917, Rotary’s sixth president, Arch Klumph, a successful businessman and musician from Cleveland, Ohio, proposed setting up an endowment fund “for the purpose of doing good in the world”.

That simple idea with an initial contribution of $26.50 (£20.40) from each member, set in motion what is now called The Rotary Foundation – a powerful force which has transformed millions of lives around the globe.
