Rotary’s programs are developing the next generation of leaders, providing funding to make the world a better place, and making peace a priority.
Rotary is dedicated to causes that build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
There are 7 areas of focus within The Rotary Foundation:

- Growing Local Economies
- Protecting the Environment
Rotary shares an interest in protecting our common legacy: The Environment.
"We are committed to supporting activities that strengthen the conservation and protection of natural resources, advance ecological sustainability, and foster harmony between communities and the environment. We empower communities to access grants and other resources, embrace local solutions, and spur innovation in an effort to address the causes and reduce the effects of climate change and environmental degradation."
Rebecca Kaufman is working on an Environmental Grant from the Rotary Foundation and is looking for ideas and committee members. Please contact Rebecca via email or speak to her at a weekly meeting.
President Gary has set a goal for our club's donations to The Rotary Foundation and is tracking it weekly. You can set up to have a monthly or quarterly amount deducted automatically from your bank account, or make an annual donation. You can donate at a weekly meeting or go online to make your donation.
