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.
