The Rotary Foundation
The Foundation is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever. The areas are:
  • Promoting peace
  • Fighting disease
  • Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  • Saving mothers and children
  • Supporting education
  • Growing local economies
The Annual Fund earned 11.6 percent in fiscal 2017, a year when stocks globally produced strong returns for investors. Over the past five years, the Annual Fund generated an average rate of return of 6.5 percent and grew from $369 million to $464 million. The rate of return is the total realized and unrealized capital gains, and interest and dividend income.
Be sure you support the Rotary Foundation.
