Support our Foundation

The Rotary Foundation was founded by past president Arch C Klumph. He envisioned what would be possible if Rotarians had such a Foundation to support their efforts. It was through Rotary that he made this ambition a reality. He believed that service to humankind truly changes our world, and for that reason, it is the greatest work of life.

Whether it is setting up a trauma centre and equipping operation theatres in Karaikal or funding upgradation of schools in Anand; whether it is running a Rotary hospital in Saregam or eye banks in Mumbai and Thane; funding check dams in rural Maharashtra; cleft lip surgeries in the Philippines or medical missions in Africa; through the work of TRF we are touching lives and transforming communities

But one simple fact remains — all programmes of TRF and the good work that it does depends on the ­contributions of Rotarians. Why do we give to TRF?

The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past 107 years, the Foundation has spent over $4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. Today global grants allow us to do large-scale, impactful projects across the world. Supporting the Annual Fund today allows us to do GGs tomorrow. Hence supporting the Annual Fund is critical. The Fund depends on contributions from Every Rotarian, Every Year.

We give to TRF to fulfil our promise of eradicating polio. The journey has been long, arduous and challenging but today we are closer than ever to a polio-free world. This is the time to rededicate and redouble our efforts. We cannot slacken our polio work. The End Polio Now campaign is not just about raising money; it is about saving our children.

Supporting the Endowment Fund ensures a bright tomorrow for our Rotary Foundation. The goal is $2.025 billion by 2025. When we reach the goal it will enable us to have about $40 million in spendable earnings every year; year after year. Think of how much good we can do.

Each one of you, dear readers, is the heart of Rotary. Thank you for your kindness and generosity in supporting TRF. In the new year let us invest in our Rotary Foundation and continue Doing Good in the World.

Dr Bharat Pandya
TRF Trustee Vice Chair
