The Rotary Foundation has a unique funding cycle that utilizes contributions for programs three years after they are received.  The three-year cycle gives districts time for program planning and participant selections, and allows The Rotary Foundation to invest the contributions.  The earnings from those investments help pay for the Foundation’s administration, program operations and fund development costs. 


At the end of the three year period – say in 2021-22, ½ of district’s contribution made in Rotary year 2018 – 19 is returned to the district for district projects while the other half is placed in the World Fund which is used to match project expenses and support the fight to eradicate polio. 


This approach of using donations wisely has won a four star rating from Charity Navigator for many years. 


Please consider supporting The Rotary Foundation now and get involved in planning future projects.  Thank you.
