Foundation Committee and Resources
Rotary Foundation Resources
Welcome to the Rotary Foundation Resources page.  These resources are intended for club Rotary Foundation chairs and committee members to help communicate with your club members and share best practices.  It is also a guide to support your club in the areas of foundation committee activities listed below.   Committee members (below) are available to you as resources. 

The following are the foundation committee activity areas:
  • Participating - enhance your Rotary club’s experiences through grants, scholarships, and polio plus activities
  • Informing - Keep your club up to date on foundation programs and results with a club program on the foundation, foundation minutes, short videos, and guest speakers
  • Donating - Initiate a campaign using recognition points to increase the number of Paul Harris Fellows or hold a fundraising event
  • Celebrating - Celebrate reaching goals, completing projects and attend the Foundation celebration dinner in April after the spring assembly.
