Kevin Bodiford, President 2015-2016
The Rotary Foundation seeks to promote international understanding, good will and peace in practical, realistic terms. Special Grants and grants for the Health, Hunger and Humanity (3-H) program are made throughout the year to support international charitable projects sponsored by Rotary clubs or districts. Scholarships and Group Study Exchanges are awarded annually to gifted men and women both to further their education and to hone their skills as effective ''ambassadors of good will'' in countries other than their own. Exposure to the life and customs of the study country through the guidance of Rotarian hosts and their families results in camaraderie and lasting friendships that help realize the Foundation's goal of furthering international understanding.
