Mission Statement

The Rotary Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation funded solely by voluntary contributions from members and friends of Rotary who support its mission to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace. Using Rotary Foundation grants, Rotary’s 34,000 clubs across the globe develop and carry out sustainable humanitarian projects and provide scholarships and professional training opportunities that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, sustain mothers and children, improve education, and strengthen local economies. The Foundation is a worldwide leader in the effort to eradicate polio through its partnership with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. When Rotary launched its PolioPlus program in 1985, more than 350,000 people were afflicted with polio each year, and the disease was endemic in more than 125 countries. Since 1988, Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative have immunized over 2.5 billion children, reducing the incidence of polio by 99 percent and eradicating it from all but three countries. Rotary has contributed more than US$1 billion and many thousands of hours to the eradication effort. The Foundation also funds the training of hundreds of peacemakers through the Rotary Peace Centers program, which enables fellows to pursue a master’s degree or professional certificate at one of Rotary’s partner universities. Through academic training, study, and practice, the fellows become leaders who promote peace and aid conflict resolution in their communities and around the world.

Program Description:

PolioPlus Eradicating polio, a top Rotary priority, requires the immunization of every child in the world. As a result of the efforts of Rotary International and its partners, one billion children have been immunized against polio since 1987. Rotarians will celebrate the certification of a polio-free world by the year 2005, Rotary"s centennial year. Through The Rotary Foundation"s PolioPlus Program, Rotarians will have contributed a half billion US dollars to the eradication effort. Of even greater significance has been the hundreds of thousands of local volunteers mobilized by Rotary clubs around the globe for polio eradication activities. Humanitarian programs The Rotary Foundation's Humanitarian Programs support a wide range of international service activities. Organized by Rotary clubs in at least two countries, humanitarian grants support projects that provide health care and supplies, clean water, food, job training and education -- particularly in the developing world. The most widely used program is Matching Grants, which makes one-time awards to match contributions raised by clubs and districts for projects involving Rotary clubs in two or more countries. Each year, some 1,000+ Matching Grants are awarded by The Rotary Foundation. Large-scale Health, Hunger and Humanity (3-H) Grants support sustainable projects that improve health, help alleviate hunger, or enhance human development. 3-H Grants normally range from $100,000 to $500,000 and fund projects from one to three years. Other Rotary Foundation programs include: Carl which provide funds for travel and related expenses incurred by Rotarians in exploring and planning new international service projects; Grants for Rotary Volunteers which cover travel costs and expenses for Rotarians, Foundation alumni, and Rotaractors who volunteer their services and professional expertise in another country; and Rotary Peace Programs which partially subsidize international conferences that focus on conflict resolution and ways to enhance the search for peace. Grants are also available to support international projects in non-Rotary countries and for disaster relief efforts. Educational Programs The Rotary Foundation Educational Programs promote international understanding and peace through scholarships and cultural exchanges. The Ambassadorial Scholarships Program sponsors some 1,300 scholars each year to study in a country other than their own. It is the largest privately sponsored international scholarships program in the world. While abroad Rotary scholars act as "ambassadors of goodwill," giving presentations about their homeland to Rotary clubs and other groups. The Rotary Foundation's Group Study Exchange (GSE) program pairs Rotary districts in different countries to send and receive professional, non-Rotarian study groups.

Evidence of Impact

There are no summaries available for this organization.

Rotary has switched their focus on water issues to doing large WASH projects that utilize their vast resources of funds, people and collaboration. Their foundation dollars are better served with these larger projects rather than using foundation dollars to support individual club projects that lack monitoring and long-term success. Nonprofit Senior Staff
There is no doubt that Rotary has made a huge contribution to water and sanitation through the projects it sponsors and supports all over the world through funding, advisory support, and community engagement. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Organizational Strengths

There are no summaries available for this organization.

1. Rotary's strength is in their membership of people who want to do right by the world. They are proud, generous people who value everyone in the world. 2. Rotary is improving on their collaboration with other organizations. They are willing to tackle the big issues but they are coming to realize that in some areas like water and sanitation, their expertise may not lie in actually doing the work but rather funding the work and letting experts design, build and manage with Rotary oversight. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They have a lot of clout and the ability to raise a lot of funds and see a lot of projects done in multiple countries. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Strong local involvement via local Rotary Clubs / Financial strength through donations raised directly from Rotarians and through mobilization of additional funds. / Great track record in polio which has enabled it to develop strong global partnerships. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Areas for Improvement

There are no summaries available for this organization.

The WASH Leadership is not funded properly. It needs a very strong leader for a multiple year commitment. Because of the nature of Rotary rules, Rotarians take on a position as President for a one year term. Their focus can change based on the goals of the incoming president and when that president changes every year, focus can be diminished when working on big multi-year projects. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They need a deeper understanding of Hygiene and Sanitation. Then things will multiply the effectiveness of the water project. They have advocates in Rotary that have this understanding but they need it project wide. They need to understand that projects cannot be accomplished without proper administration and supplies. These need to be able to be supplied with their funding. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Limited capacity for monitoring and evaluation which it is now trying to address. / Uncoordinated, piece meal approach to water and sanitation projects. Nonprofit Senior Staff
