Every Rotarian EREY

The Every Rotarian Every Year program

The Every Rotarian Every Year program is the primary source of funding for Foundation activities. The Annual Fund’s unique three-year investment cycle gives clubs time to plan high-impact, sustainable activities and the Foundation time to invest the contributions. These investment earnings help cover the Foundation’s administrative and fundraising expenses.

In 2011-12, Canada ranked 5th in the top 10. The Annual Fund received contributions of $110.1 million, with 36 countries and geographical areas exceeding the Every Rotarian, Every Year initiative’s worldwide $100 per capita goal.

The Every Rotarian, Every Year (EREY) initiative encourages all Rotary club members to help us reach our goal to support The Rotary Foundation financially each year. You can direct your Annual Fund gift to SHARE, the World Fund, or an area of Focus fund. (read more, by mousing over each of the blue highlighted words, for )

  • SHARE is the primary source of funding for Rotary Foundation programs. It’s also the only Annual Fund designation that generates funding for the District Designated Fund. Rotary districts use their DDF to pay for the Foundation activities they choose to participate in.
  • World Fund contributions provide the Foundation’s portion of funding for approved grants. Through the World Fund, the Foundation Trustees can allocate funds where the needs are the greatest.
  • Areas of focus contributions provide the Foundation’s portion of funding for activities addressing critical humanitarian issues and needs.

All options are available for one-time or recurring contributions.
