3 Success of The Rotary Foundation Over the past three decades, The Rotary Foundation has seen the variety, use, and demand for its programs increase. 10,000 matching grants were issued in the 35 years between 1965 and The second 10,000 were issued in just 4 years between 2000 to Staff was drowning in paperwork – something had to be done. 11/25/2012ROTARY CLUB OF SAN BERNARDINO3

4 Rotary’s Future Vision Plan 11/25/2012ROTARY CLUB OF SAN BERNARDINO4

5 Rotary’s Future Vision Plan The Future Vision Plan is a major strategic shift – both for Rotary International and for The Rotary Foundation. It establishes strategic priorities for large- scale projects. It returns decision making to the local districts for smaller-scale projects. 11/25/2012ROTARY CLUB OF SAN BERNARDINO5

6 SAME FOUNDATION FUNDS Future Vision Retains the Existing Ways to Give 11/25/2012ROTARY CLUB OF SAN BERNARDINO6

11 THE NEW GRANT MODEL Foundation staff was drowning in paperwork. Many projects were targeted poorly and the public was often unaware of Rotary’s good work. 11/25/2012ROTARY CLUB OF SAN BERNARDINO11

12 New Grant Model Uses resources more effectively: – Under the new model, 80% of the budget will support high-impact, sustainable projects. 11/25/2012ROTARY CLUB OF SAN BERNARDINO12

13 New Grant Model Plan for a future without Polio: – The eradication of Polio will enhance the Foundation’s image and open up opportunities for new humanitarian initiatives. 11/25/2012ROTARY CLUB OF SAN BERNARDINO13
