Programs of The Rotary Foundation
Through Foundation grants and programs, Rotarians and other contributors can help change the world. They can finance a well for a village that lacks clean water, improve the environment, or provide scholarships to educate the next generation. The grants and programs available to Rotarians allow them to realize Rotary's humanitarian mission throughout the world, including its number-one goal of eradicating polio.
To eradicate polio, Rotarians have mobilized by the hundreds of thousands. They're working to ensure that children are immunized against this crippling disease and that surveillance is strong despite the poor infrastructure, extreme poverty, and civil strife of many countries. Since the PolioPlus program's inception in 1985, more than two billion children have received the oral polio vaccine.
Rotary's US$200 Million Challenge is the Rotary Foundation's response to the two grants totaling $355 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help eradicate polio. Every dollar given to PolioPlus will be counted toward the $200 million match, which must be completed by 30 June 2012.

Ihave always thought it important to bear in mind that Rotary is avoluntary organization, composed of people who are all themselvesleaders.

Every Rotary club is and must beautonomous: The leadership of Rotary International exists not tocontrol, but to motivate and guide.

One of Rotary's four avenues of service is "vocational service", whereby we honour and respect our individual contributions to our community through our vocations. New members are given the opportunity to share their vocation by giving a classification talk.
