Change the world by contributing US$2 a week to The Rotary Foundation
Through the Annual Programs Fund, which is the primary source of funding for Rotary Foundation programs, Rotarians help make the world a better place.
For the 2009-10 Rotary year, approximately 308,000 Rotarians participated in the Every Rotarian, Every Year initiative, which funds the Annual Programs Fund. About 235,000 of those contributors are Rotary Foundation Sustaining Members contributing $100 or more a year.
As of 1 July, the start of the Rotary year, to 31 May, about $87.8 million has been raised toward the Foundation's $95.5 million goal.
If every one of the 1.2 million Rotarians contributed just $2 a week, in one year the Foundation could raise almost $125 million.
That's money that goes back to Rotarians in the form of scholarships and grants for projects that bring hope and make a difference in the lives of countless people. Rotarians have used grant money to bring sight to those blinded by cataracts, bought wheelchairs for those who could not use their legs, gave clean water to those made sick by contaminated water, and opened up new worlds by helping people learn to read.
