Rotary clubs bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action. Rotary International (RI) supports Rotary clubs worldwide by coordinating global programs, campaigns, and initiatives. A new theme is identified annually. The Rotary Foundation uses generous donations to fund projects by Rotarians and our partners in communities around the world. As a nonprofit, charitable arm of RI, all of the Foundation's funding comes from voluntary contributions made by Rotarians and friends who share our vision of a better world. Together, Rotary Clubs, Rotary International, and The Rotary Foundation work to make lasting improvements in our communities and around the world.
