1917 to 2017

The Rotary Foundation is 100 years old this year.

 

The Foundation transforms its gifts into service projects that change lives - both close to home and around the world. In 2016 the Foundation was named the world's outstanding foundation bythe Association of Fundraising Professionals.


At the 1917 convention, outgoing Rotary president Arch Klumph proposed setting up an endowment “for the purpose of doing good in the world.” That one idea, and an initial contribution of $26.50, set in motion a powerful force that has transformed millions of lives around the globe.


During the past 100 years, the Rotary Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects, making a difference for those who need help the most. The Foundation has a 4 Star rating, Charity Navigator’s highest. 91% of funds are used directly on projects.


Rotary’s 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our primary causes. We’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases. For every dollar that Rotary commits to polio eradication, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $2. Donations also train future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthen local economies.
