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 OUR Rotary Foundation - Doing Good in The World

Through Foundation grants and programs, Rotarians and other contributors can help change the world. They can finance a well for a village that lacks clean water, improve the environment or provide scholarships to educate the next generation. The grants and programs available to Rotarians allow them to realise Rotary's humanitarian mission throughout the world, including its number-one goal of eradicating polio.

Purple4Polio Crocus Corms Planting 2017

The Purple4Polio crocus corm planting 2016 was a huge success with nearly 7 million purple corms being planted across Great Britain and Ireland resulting in a carpet of purple in communities during spring 2017.

The campaign has produced over 800 pieces of media coverage, helping to raise awareness of how important it is to end polio now and forever.

The purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary’s worldwide campaign to eradicate polio, with its colour representing the purple dye used to mark the finger of a child to indicate they have received their life saving oral polio vaccine.

This year, we are aiming to go even further and plant 10 million purple crocus corms! Get your green fingers at the ready.
