- A new message from D6000 Foundation Chair Chris Knapp:
The Rotary Foundation is changing the world by providing grants for projects and activities around the globe and in our own backyards. Sixty-five million dollars in grants have been given to clubs and districts to fight disease.
Rotary makes amazing things happen, like:
Providing clean water: Rotary has worked with partners to provide more than 80 percent of Ghana’s people with clean water to fight Guinea worm disease.
Reducing HIV infection: In Liberia, Rotary members are helping women get tested for HIV early in their pregnancies. They used prenatal care to reduce new HIV infections in children by 95 percent over the last two years.
Ending polio: Rotary members have played a key role in bringing the world to the brink of polio eradication. Their efforts have not only ended polio in 122 countries but also created a system for tackling myriad other health priorities, such as Ebola.
Your contribution to The Rotary Foundation enables this to happen. Giving to the Foundation is much easier – just go to rotary.org/donate.
