The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is a not-for-profit corporation that receives contributions totaling more than US $100 million annually and spends more than $105 million each year in support of humanitarian and educational programs that are implemented by Rotary Club and District Rotarians.

Remember that all the funds that are contributed in 2010 - 2011 will be spent by The Rotary Foundation and the District 6400 Rotary International Foundation Committee in 2013 - 2014!

The Rotary Foundation Future Vision Pilot is a three-year test of the new grant structure offered in the Foundation's Future Vision Plan. One hundred districts are participating in the pilot. Pilot districts will have a unique opportunity to help refine the new grant structure by providing input and receiving specialized Foundation support and service.

Grant structure
Pilot districts will work with Rotary Foundation District Grants and Rotary Foundation Global Grants for three years of the pilot. Download the terms and conditions for these grants. For more information, view the " Choosing a grant " interactive training module.
Rotary Foundation District Grants
District grants are block grants made to districts for up to 50 percent of their District Designated Fund (DDF). District grants offer the flexibility to respond quickly to immediate needs or to plan projects with clubs locally or in other countries.
Rotary Foundation Global Grants
Global grants support large international projects with sustainable, high-impact outcomes in the six areas of focus that correspond to the Foundation's mission.
Areas of focus
1. Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
2. Disease prevention and treatment
3. Water and sanitation
4. Maternal and child health
5. Basic education and literacy
6. Economic and community development

The new grant structure attempts to optimize contributions to our Foundation so that clubs and districts can maximize the use of funds for greater impact, flexibility, and sustainability in their work.
