Regional Rotary Foundation Coordinators

Regional Rotary Foundation Coordinators (RRFC) have three primary functions:

• Promoting financial support for The Rotary Foundation
• Promoting program support for The Rotary Foundation
• Training Rotarians about The Rotary Foundation

Each RRFC works with a team appointed by the chair of the Foundation Trustees. This team includes Assistant RRFCs, Alumni Coordinator and $200 Million Polio Challenge Coordinator. RRFCs are available to assist clubs and districts with training, education, program participation and to encourage financial support for The Rotary Foundation. The RRFC and their team members work directly with the District Rotary Foundation Committee Chair, committee members and the district leadership.
