The Rotary Foundation - Code of Policies (extract)
3.010. Preamble to the Guidelines for Associate Foundations
The Rotary Foundation believes that there should be one Rotary Foundation that serves Rotarians and clubs throughout the world, but understands that substantial benefits have been provided by those associate foundations recognized by the Trustees of TRF. This includes not only raising funds for the use of TRF programs, but also the provision of services in support of The Rotary Foundation’s global programs. The Trustees acknowledge that it is to the clear advantage of Rotary International that it have only one Foundation to develop and maintain the best global programs and international investments, but that associate foundations significantly enhance the service by TRF to Rotarians and Rotary clubs.(June 2008 Trustees Mtg., Dec. 178)
