For a century the mission of The Rotary Foundation has enabled its members to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
TRF is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world. It is a cornerstone of Rotary International.
The Rotary Foundation has received the highest possible score from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities in the U.S. citing excellence for both financial health and accountability, and transparency.
The ratings reflect how efficiently the Foundation uses donations, how well it has sustained programs and services, and its level of commitment to good governance and openness.
For decades our District 6970 Rotary Foundation has distinguished itself by meeting its commitment to “do good” in the world.
Doing good has been the motto of the The Rotary Foundation since its inception in 1917.
As an international leader in The Rotary Foundation, District 6970 clubs have provided millions of dollars in financial support to TRF and awarded millions of dollars in community project grants, scholarships, and joint club projects and marshalled thousands and thousands of hours in volunteer participation.
TRF selected District 6970 to be one of 100 international pilot districts to pioneer what was called: Future Vision. Future Vision is today the underpinning of the modern TRF and its breadth of humanitarian programs.
