The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.
Strong financial oversight, a stellar charity rating, and a unique funding model mean that we make the very most of your contribution. Give and become a part of Rotary’s life-changing work!
The District 6690 Foundation Committee is responsible for promoting all aspects of charitable giving to the Rotary Foundation. These include the permanent fund; major donors; the annual fund (EREY) and polio eradication. Presentations on various aspects of the Rotary Foundation are available to you club.
We also have presentations that can be used at your club meetings. Contact the District Rotary Foundation Chair, Price Finley to arrange a presentation for your club or to learn more about presentations available.
The Rotary Foundation offers grants that support a wide variety of projects, scholarships, and training that support the work that Rotarians are doing around the world. Explore the grant types and find one that’s right for your project.

– District grants fund small-scale, short-term activities that address needs in our local community and communities around the world. These grants are administered by the District with the assistance of the Foundation Chair and the District Grants Subcommittee. Learn more about the process by attending the Grants Management Seminar sponsored by the district each year.
The next District Grant Management Seminar will be held on Sept. 23, 2017 at Zane State College, Zansville.
END POLIO NOW
Rotary’s number one goal is to eliminate polio in the world. To this end, Rotary District 6690 is highly committed to helping Rotary achieve this goal. Last year our clubs raised over $70,000 for polio and our district contributed an additional $15,000. With the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation match of $2 to $1 we provided for 250,000 vaccines for children. This year our goal is to vaccinate 1,000,000 million children.
By having our clubs work with their communities we were able to create a greater awareness of what is necessary to achieve this goal. Our district has speakers available to your club or organization should you be interested in learning more about polio.
