This update from the Rotary Foundation gives an impressive snapshot of what the Foundation—and our support of it—is accomplishing.

In the Rotary year of 2014-15, the Rotary Foundation approved 487 district grants that totaled $23.8 million. They supported smaller-scale, short-term projects related the Foundation’s mission.

The Foundation approved 1,078 global grants totaling $64.9 million dollars. Rotary’s global grants support large-scale, sustainable international activities that have measurable outcomes; they support humanitarian projects, scholarships, and vocational training teams.   

And in 2013-14, a total of $235 million dollars was distributed through Rotary’s grant process to the world. This is more than the Rockefeller, JB Morgan Chase, and MacArthur Foundations put together!   

Thank you, Rotarians, for “doing good in the world!”
