Rotary Foundation Turns 100 in Rotary Year 2016-2017

The Rotary Foundation stands at the forefront of humanitarian service, having supported thousands of projects to provide clean water, fight disease, promote peace, and provide basic education as well as the historic project dedicated towards the eradication of polio worldwide.   he seed for The Rotary Foundation was planted by Rotary President Arch Klumph at the Atlanta Convention in 1917. From the first gift of $26.50, the Foundation's assets have grown significantly, and more than $3 billion has been spent on programs and projects — transforming millions of lives around the globe.  In a letter to Rotary Club President on February 5, 1929, Arch C. Klumph wrote, “WE SHOULD NOT LIVE FOR OURSELVES ALONE, BUT FOR THE JOY IN DOING GOOD FOR OTHERS."     
Thank you for making your contributions to The Rotary Foundation today and in the future.
