Rotary District 7190
 
Serving New York's Capital District
and Beyond
The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

Benefits of The Rotary Foundation:
  • A Safer World:  Military might alone can not produce peace. The Rotary Foundation offers alternatives and a better life for thousands.
  • Cultural Awareness:  Young professionals in our communities can discover new insights about their work responsibilities as practiced in other parts of the world while exploring the richness of other cultures as part of a Group Study Exchange.
  • Educational Opportunity:  Young people in our communities can compete for generous scholarships which provide for foreign academic study and experience as ambassadors of goodwill.
  • World Peace Fellows prepare to address conflict resolution issues worldwide. 
  • Ambassadorial Scholars further their education while promoting understanding between their culture and their host community.
  • Community Service:  A percentage of donations to the Rotary Foundation are used in our own community for qualified projects to benefit the environment, children, the elderly or disadvantaged. The Rotary Foundation can improve the quality of life for all citizens, local and international.
