At Rotary´s 104th International Convention in Lisbon, Rotary and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced that they will extend their partnership during the critical endgame phase of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. The Gates Foundation will match 2 for 1 every dollar Rotary commits up to US$35 million to polio eradication through 2018.Rotary and the Gates Foundation have partnered on polio eradication since 2007, when the Gates Foundation gave Rotary a $100 million challenge grant for polio eradication, increasing it to $355 million in 2009. Rotary agreed to raise $200 million in matching funds by June 2012. When the organization achieved its fundraising goal six months ahead of schedule, the Gates Foundation granted Rotary an additional $50 million.To date, Rotary clubs worldwide have contributed US$1.2 billion to the polio eradication effort.
PolioPlus is successful because Rotarians believe in our commitment and support it financially. We give to polio eradication because we see very clearly what our money is doing and what we are helping to achieve. We all take pride in knowing that the money we give is helping to buy a polio-free world. If we want the freedom to be ambitious in our service, we must know that we have a strong Foundation supporting us. And if we want to know that Rotary will endure, we need a strong Permanent Fund — for whatever lies ahead. In order to enhance the Permanent Fund, a new Fund Development Committee and Endowment/Major Gifts advisers have been appointed to assist in this effort.
“The new model will enable us to help more people, in more lasting ways. It will ensure that our good work will last and have the greatest impact. As stewards of our Foundation, this is our goal, and our responsibility. “Rotary’s new grant model proves its value in the pilot and is ready to launch on 1 July 2013:• The Future Vision pilot districts have thoroughly tested the new grant model and provided valuable feedback for the Trustees and staff. In a recent survey, 87% of pilot districts said that the new model is excellent, very good, or good.• After receiving intensive training for the new grant model this year, 96% of nonpilot district leaders reported that they support the new model.• In April, the Future Vision Plan won a silver Edison Award in the Lifestyle and Social Impact Category for its innovative funding model.• Learn more about the new grant model at www.rotary.org/grants.
Rotary has a tremendous reach, and can do a great deal. But one thing that we all know in Rotary is that we can do more together than we can alone. When we work with local NGOs and other organizations, we gain more knowledge and more insight. We add to our resources and our abilities. And we build more bridges of understanding, friendship, and cooperation. By partnering with others throughout the world, we often achieve more, and learn more, than we set out to do. We have learned, through our long history in polio eradication, how effective such partnerships can be. Our many global partners have made polio eradication possible and have helped us to achieve a great deal of good along the way. This is an important lesson, and it is one that we must build on in the years ahead.

So what can we all do as Rotary members
around the world?
• Rotary needs to “up its game” to a higher level
of interaction and international development.
• RI level representatives need to be involved at
government levels and within senior levels of
NGOs and the UN.
