  • Fellow Rotarians and Family of Rotary, It is my pleasure to present an update on the Future Vision Plan of The Rotary Foundation. The Trustees have taken significant steps in reviewing the current programs and operations of our Foundation and envisioning its potential in our second century of service. We will be celebrating our 100 th anniversary within the next decade, and we continually strive to improve our Foundation—making it stronger, more prominent, and more accessible.
