The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to support the efforts of Rotarians as they strive to assist Rotary International in the fulfillment of the Object of Rotary and Rotary's mission.  That mission is the achievement of world understanding and peace through local, national and international humanitarian, educational, and cultural programs.

The Rotary Foundation was started in 1917 by Rotary International's sixth president, Arch C. Klumph.  The first donation was $26.50, the profit from the International Convention held in Kansas City, Missouri. The Rotary Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation that is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

The Rotary Foundation consists of three funds, which accept contributions from Rotarians; The Annual Programs Fund, The Permanent Fund, and The Restricted Gifts Fund.
