Million Dollar Campaign
Rotary's tomorrow depends on what we do today.
Many Districts have successfully hosted a Million Dollar Dinner to increase donations to The Rotary Foundation (rated 4 out of 4 stars by Charity Navigator). There are many Rotarians and friends of Rotary that can truly make a difference by making a major financial contribution to support The Rotary Foundation and six areas of focus: 
  • Water and Sanitation;
  • Maternal and Child Health;
  • Basic Education and Literacy;
  • Peace and Conflict Prevention and Resolution;
  • Disease Prevention and Treatment and;
  • Economic and Community Development.  
You can be an important part of the Foundation's next century of serving humanity by including a gift to Rotary's Endowment in your estate plan.
What does your gift to the Rotary Foundation accomplish?
Well that depends on what is most important to you! Your support is invited through an outright Major Donor gift*, Arch Klumph Society Gift* or Bequest Society gift*. If already a donor, please consider an increased gift of support to your current Bequest, Benefactor or Major Donor Gift levels. Your own personal named fund may be established within Rotary’s endowment with any outright or gift commitment of USD$25,000**. Gifts may be directed towards:
  • Polio Eradication - which includes the Gates 2:1 match!
  • Annual Programs**- shared gift split 50/50 between World Fund and your district … to enable district activities for both local and international projects. (if endowed, will gift out in perpetuity)  
  • World Fund** - an unrestricted gift for the greater good of Rotary as determined by the Trustees of the Rotary Foundation.
  • Rotary Peace Centers** - Rotary’s highest educational priority. Your gift will fund our Peace Fellows at one of our 7 premier global institutions of learning partners.
  • Any of Rotary’s Six area’s of focus which include: Water and Sanitation, Disease Prevention and treatment, Maternal and Child Health, Economic and community development, Basic education and Literacy and Peace.   
We have kicked off our campaign, (over $250,000 already committed), and asked cluster captains to tap on shoulders within their communities in hopes of raising a Million Dollars.  You can help.  
A celebration dinner will be hosted to thank those who support our campaign and enable the program and project work of the Rotary Foundation. (for gifts made from 1 January 2018 to 6 May 2019)
Thank you for taking action that improves communities … with your gift of support to our Rotary Foundation!
