Over 6 years as a Rotarian I have realized that Rotary is the largest network I know of caring and involved people in action for service and positive global change. I always wanted to make a difference, I always wanted to follow a mission for doing good in the world until became a member involved in the Rotary foundation of my local rotary club during four years.
“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.”
We accomplish this by using the expertise and compassion of Rotarians who foster effective and sustainable projects around the world. We are looking to the future and incorporating projects within the 6 areas of focus bringing us closer to our mission while supporting the amazing work of Rotarians. Through OUR Foundation, we reach out to both our local and international communities enriching the lives of millions.
Whether it’s eradicating polio in India, digging water wells in the Philippines, providing dictionaries to a local elementary school, or educating a scholar in peace and conflict resolution, Rotary creates the environment and circumstances to promote peace throughout the world.

The Rotary Foundation is special because:
o Addresses all of the greatest educational and humanitarian needs;
o Its world reach is greater than the United Nations;
o We can go where politicians and religious groups cannot.
The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation Grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.
Our Foundation is a premier organization, and it owes its success to the support of Rotarians, many of whom have gained their appreciation of Foundation programs during the traditional emphasis on such programs in November. The importance of Rotary Foundation Month should not be discounted, and I hope that all of our clubs will feature the Foundation during the month of November. It is a significant and productive tradition, and I encourage all Rotarians to take the time to attend their club and district Foundation events this month. Embrace the tradition! Celebrate the Foundation!
