Ways to Give

You can direct your Annual Fund gift to SHARE, the World Fund, or an area of focus fund. A gift to The Rotary Foundation for a loved one is meaningful way to honor or memorialize that person. Tribute gifts may be for a birthday, wedding, graduation or any special event or occasion.

Why not let your gift build a bridge of hope for those less fortunate around the world? Your generosity can provide food for a hungry child, clean water for an entire village, medicine for the sick, and thousands of other good works in our global community.

When you make a tribute or memorial gift, The Rotary Foundation will send a letter to the recipient or the recipient’s family to let them know about your gift. The amount of your gift is not disclosed. The TRFWe also will send an acknowledgment to you as the donor. You will receive a separate tax receipt for gifts above US$25.
