Rotary Foundation

Rotary Foundation is the central charity fund of Rotary International.

The Rotary Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation that supports the efforts of Rotary International to achieve world understanding and peace through international humanitarian, educational, and cultural exchange programs. It is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

The programmes include Polio Plus and Global Grants post-graduate scholarships.  (See separate pages for our participation in these programmes.)
