Mission The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.
Programs of The Rotary Foundation Through Foundation grants and programs, Rotarians and other contributors can help change the world. They can finance a well for a village that lacks clean water, improve the environment, or provide scholarships to educate the next generation. The grants and programs available to Rotarians allow them to realize Rotary’s humanitarian mission throughout the world, including its number-one goal of eradicating polio.

TRF – Future Vision Plan Why was it adopted? The Foundation Trustees identified a growing need to focus efforts in order to achieve greater impact, more public recognition, and streamlined operations for improved efficiency.
What will change ? Under Future Vision, the Foundation offers two types of grants. District grants are block grants that enable clubs and districts to address immediate needs in their communities and abroad. Global grants offer opportunities to participate in strategically focused, high-impact activities within the six areas of focus. Global grants range from $30,000 to $400,000. This means minimum MG Project of $60,000
Are We ready for it ? Our District is currently not part of the Pilot program, but from 2013-14, we shall have the same rules as others. A minimum MG project of $60,000 will be really tough for Clubs who have not prepared themselves to be ready for BIGGER projects. RC Vasco da gama has a TRF MG total of $133,471 with the biggest one being $38,000
Areas of FocusPeace and conflict prevention/resolutionDisease prevention and treatmentWater and sanitationMaternal and child healthBasic education and literacyEconomic and community developmentRotary International and The Rotary Foundation recognize these six areas of focus as organizational priorities, and there are countless ways that Rotarians can address these needs locally and internationally.
Packaged Global GrantsThe Foundation is also developing packaged global grants with its strategic partners. The World Fund and the strategic partner provide 100 percent of the funding, while Rotarians implement the grant project like: Partnering with an international organization to distribute bio-sand water filters for villages that need clean water Partnering with an internationally recognized university to provide graduate students with the opportunity to study infectious disease and maternal health Partnering with international organizations and respected universities to provide vocational training to health workers in poor countries
