The Rotary Foundation

The Rotary Foundation is our Charity within Rotary and its aim is to give grants to clubs who use the money to fund projects around the world. The motto is: 'Doing good in the World' The funding comes entirely from members donations


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.

The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation and is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation and generous donations from the public who share it's vision of a better world.


Polio Eradication

The fight to end polio is led by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative which includes Rotary International, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, World Health Organisation, UNICEF, U.S. Centre for Disease Control and Prevention and governments of the world with support of many others worldwide.

As long as Polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk.

Accrington Rotary support The Rotary Foundation and also the End Polio Now campaign through the Purple4Polio initiative. This involves raising funds and amongst other things the planting of purple crocus bulbs around the area to show support for and raise awareness of the campaign.
