Rotary Foundation Minute


Every year, hundreds of thousands of people – children, families and entire communities – benefit from projects funded by The Rotary Foundation.  Its concentration is in six areas of focus:  promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education and growing local economies.


In this season of giving a $10 gift can provide bed nets to combat malaria in countries like Uganda and for a donation of $25, it can purchase the necessary school uniform which enables a child to attend school.  Your $50 gift can provide water filters that will combat deadly waterborne diseases in Guatemala, and $85 can purchase purple markers used to mark the pinkie fingers of children who have received the polio vaccine.  $100 can provide a sewing machine used to launch a business in India, and $250 gives mothers living in domestic violence shelters the means to bathe and care for their babies.

Rotary’s “Doing Good in the World” takes on many projects and tasks that make the world a better place.  Your contribution and support of The Rotary Foundation allows this to happen.
