Foundation Mission & Resources

The mission of The Rotary Foundation 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.

Toward this mission, the Eradication of Polio, through the distribution of polio vaccine worldwide, has been the signature effort of Rotary International.  Today, only two countries in the world have known cases of polio.  Rotary is very close to achieving its goal!
