The mission of The Rotary Foundation (TRF) is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
It’s Rotary’s Charity, it’s our charity and it should have the support of all clubs and Rotarians.  Donations by Rotarians in Australia are tax deductible through the Australian Rotary Foundation Trust.

It provides material that is highly informative – both to the public and to Rotary members.  Please “click” the above and visit the site, you’ll find it very useful.
Rotarians, a key resource in the site is the My Foundation page.  Think of it as the go‑to page you’ve always wanted, with links to a whole range of resources, such as how-to’s,  brochures and forms, as well as frequently used pages in
The site also displays stories about grant-funded projects that clubs have pursued to deliver significant and sustainable impact.  Clubs have so many great stories to tell about their amazing grant-funded projects and I would encourage you to for inclusion in the site.
