The Rotary Foundation is Rotary International's fundraising arm.  Foundation Grants are used to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.  Donations to the Rotary Foundation directly fund peace-building and conflict prevention, disaster relief, disease prevention and treatment, water sanitation and hygiene, maternal and child health, education and literacy, and community economic development. 

Do you support these efforts?  The Rotary Foundation is a trusted, financially transparent nonprofit organization with excellent ratings from Charity Navigator and Charity Watch.  Your contribution would support life-changing initiatives worldwide, but it would also be available to your local Rotary club's community initiatives through district grants.
