The Rotary Foundation is the charitable arm of Rotary International and its mission is to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. For example, for over 20 years Rotary Foundation, together with its spearheading partners, WHO, UNICEF and others, have fought to eradicate polio worldwide, and are very nearly there. Rotary has been able to contribute over US$800 million to date to the End Polio Now campaign thanks to the efforts and generosity of Rotarians everywhere.
