ABOUT THE ROTARY FOUNDATION
In 1917, an endowment for the purpose of doing good in the world was set up with an initial contribution of $26.50,
which, today, has grown to more than $1 billion. That one idea set in motion a powerful force that has transformed millions of lives
around the globe.
Contributions to The Rotary Foundation are utilized in service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.
