The mission of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty.
 
As the charitable arm of Rotary, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our six areas of focus (https://www.rotary.org/en/our-causes).
 
The Foundation has invested $3.95 billion in programs, projects, and scholarships. It has a best in class, 4 star-rating from Charity Navigator and invests 91% of its revenue in programs.
 
Past District Governor/Past President Dave Haddow shared the Club's experience in being awarded three $25,000 Foundation Scholarships for local students to pursue post graduate degrees at international universities.
 
President Elect John Boot described how the Foundation's Global Grants helped fund three major water and sanitation projects that the Club led, the most recent being a $160,000 project in Marsabit, Kenya.
 
The NOTL Club has also been awarded annual Foundation grants for many years to support projects that the Club has championed, the most recent being the sensory room at Red Roof Retreat.
