Foundation, The Rotary Charity

Rotary's own Internal Charity


 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. Rotary Foundation in the United Kingdom (RFUK) is an Associate Foundation of the international charitable trust. Based at Alcester in Warwickshire, RFUK handles Gift Aid, legacies, covenants and ordinary contributions from Rotarians and individuals.

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. 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.
