The Rotary Foundation

The Rotary Foundation is Rotary’s own and only charity and in 2016/17 will be celebrating its centennial anniversary. Former Rotary International President Arch Klumph’s idea for an endowment fund dedicated to ‘Doing Good In The World’ planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917. Today we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and our six Areas of Focus..
