Give the Gift of Rotary

Dear Rotarian ,

For 100 years, The Rotary Foundation has been supporting the work of Rotarians like you, who find sustainable solutions to their communities’ most pressing needs. Last year alone, Rotarians partnered with our Foundation to:
  • Equip communities in Peru with water filtration systems and hygiene training to improve public health
  • Create a mobile cancer screening unit in India to lower mortality rates due to late diagnosis
  • Train midwives in rural Uganda to use ultrasound scanning to identify life-threatening conditions during pregnancy

This year we need your support more than ever as we celebrate 100 years of Doing Good in the World. See how every gift makes a difference.

Give the gift of Rotary today and be a part of the positive change Rotarians are making in your community and around the world. If you’ve made a gift recently but it has not yet reached the Foundation, I appreciate your generosity. Thank you for supporting our Foundation’s good work and your commitment to Rotary Serving Humanity.

Scottish Rite Playground Visit

A sneak peak at the new

In January, visitors to will discover a new, contemporary site that tells Rotary’s story in a fresh and exciting way. Rotary staff offer a look at the site’s features: a modern design, increased use of imagery and graphics, and better organization to help readers – especially newcomers – find out who we are and what we’re doing.

Christmas Party At the Crosby's
The 2016 Christmas Party was held at the home of Doug and Cassie Crosby. We had an awesome time in their beautiful home. Delicious food and great fun with our Rotary friends and spouses. The White Elephant gift exchange was very vivid this year with some surprise gifts that drew some big laughters.
Corporate Membership
Corporate membership and new membership types
Are you interested in offering new membership types in your club? Robert Fisher, of the Rotary Club of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, recently described his experience with corporate memberships. Learn how his club applied this new flexibility to increase membership.
Here’s what clubs need to know about corporate memberships and other new membership types:
• Clubs are free to offer alternative memberships of any kind. For corporate memberships, clubs count individuals as members, not the corporations that sponsor them. 
• If corporate members pay RI dues, they will be included in their club’s official membership count and receive all the benefits that other active, dues-paying members enjoy. 
• Clubs can have special policies for these members’ other financial obligations (club and district dues, meal costs, etc.), attendance requirements, or service expectations, as long as the club bylaws reflect these policies.
Learn more about new options for club flexibility.
Singing and dancing to keep India polio-free

On a warm day in October, Ingrid Schwab and a team of Rotary staff members join a group of dancing and singing children in Khera Khurd on the outskirts of Delhi, India, for an immunization day rally. “We are greeted with beating drums, beaming smiles, and fragrant flower garlands … we smile and laugh and our delight is captured on camera. Quite a celebration.”
