During the 2021 ACT Lockdown, the Rotary Club of Hall decided to make a $5,000 donation toward the Rotary Foundation in support of Rotary’s global projects. Then, in June 2022, the club donated a further $6,000 to take our total donation for the year to $11,000.
This money is used for matching grants that help enable Rotary projects around the world such as improving health, providing quality education, improving the environment, and alleviating poverty.
In 1917, Rotary International President Arch C. Klumph proposed an endowment “for the purpose of doing good in the world.” His vision became The Rotary Foundation.
Rotary Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.
Since its beginnings over a century ago, the Foundation has funded more than US$4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects through club contributions such as ours.
Contributing to the foundation is a way any individual, club or organisation can be assured that their hard-earned funds will be put to good use.
