The Rotary Foundation is supported solely by contributions from the public, Rotary members and friends of the Foundation.
Those contributions, gifts and donations are transformed into service projects that change the lives of thousands of people across the world.
With 91% of funds spent on the programmes and projects it delivers, The Rotary Foundation, based at the Rotary Headquarters in Illinois, USA, is globally recognised for its financial efficiency, accountability and transparency.
Each year, The Rotary Foundation gives $70 million worth of grants to Rotary clubs throughout the world for humanitarian projects, vocational training and scholarships in Rotary’s cause areas.
Ranging from small-scale, short term activities to large, international projects, Rotary grants strengthen global partnerships and provide sustainable and measurable benefits to communities.
Grants from The Rotary Foundation support over 1,000 projects every year.
