The Foundation’s Mission 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.  When you give to The Rotary International (RI) Foundation, you fuel RI service projects - projects that eradicate polio, promote peace and improve developing communities. 
 
The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.  During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.  Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most.  More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting our service projects around the world.
 
Rotarians can contribute in a range of different ways including:
  • The Paul Harris Society recognizes Rotary Members who undertake to contribute $1,000 each year to The Rotary International Foundation of Rotary International.  Rotary Districts often honor new Members of the Paul Harris Society by presenting them with a certificate and chevron at a district or club event.
  • Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY)The EREY initiative asks every Rotarian to support The Rotary International Foundation every year.  In addition to contributing to the Annual Fund on a regular basis, Members are encouraged to get involved in a Foundation project or program.  A goal which many set for themselves is $100 per year. 
  • End Polio Now Contributions and for $100 to be an End Polio Now Society Member.  
  • Individual Rotary Clubs can apply to the Rotary Foundation - both through their Rotary District and Rotary International - for grants towards their projects. Accordingly, funds we contribute to the Rotary International Foundation can be returned to us to support our own projects.   
  • For more information about ways to give to the Foundation and schedule a presentation, please contact Larry Stone at larry.stone@fourstone.com.
 
Rotarians, thank you for all you do!  You are making a huge difference in this world!  A very blessed Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.
