Thanks to a partnership with The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, every dollar raised by Rotarians is matched 2 to 1.

Rotarians represent a cross-section of businesses and professions. Rotary Clubs encourage members to participate in service to others as part of their activities. The organization initiates humanitarian programs that address today’s challenging issues, such as hunger, poverty, lack of clean water, peace and conflict resolution, and illiteracy.
Rotary club members include 1.2 million men and women who donate their expertise, time and funds to support local and international projects that help people in need and promote understanding among cultures.
