Dr. Phillips Rotary Foundation

About The Dr. Phillips Rotary Foundation

Dr. Phillips Rotary Foundation transforms gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, the RI Foundation taps into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact. District Grants District grants fund smaller, short-term activities that address needs in our Club’s community.

We choose which projects we will fund with these grants. Global grants support large international activities that have sustainable, measurable outcomes in one or more areas of focus. Rotarians create their own projects and carry them out. Global grants promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, support immunization programs, improve access to medical care and train health care providers, fight major diseases such as polio, HIV/AIDS and malaria, support education and literacy programs and promote economic and community development. Giving is done by Rotarians through an annual fund, an endowment fund,  Paul Harris Fellowships, sustaining memberships, Polio Plus and a variety of giving societies.
