The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change
lives both close to home and around the world.

Rotary Foundation Australia (RFA) is one of The Rotary Foundation’s eight Associate Foundations around the world.  We enable Australians – both individuals and organisations – to make tax deductible gifts to the Foundation.
RFA has just launched a new website:  It provides material that is highly informative – both to the public and to Rotary members.  Please click the link and visit the site, I think you’ll find it very useful.
For Rotarians, a key resource in the site is the My Foundation page.  Think of it as the go‑to page you’ve always wanted, with links to a whole range of resources, such as how-to’s,  brochures and forms, as well as frequently used pages in
The site also displays stories about grant-funded projects that Australian clubs have pursued to deliver significant and sustainable impact.  Our clubs have so many great stories to tell about their amazing grant-funded projects and I would encourage you to submit stories for inclusion in the site.
Can I also encourage you to include links to the site in your club and district websites, social media pages, etc.  This will help to raise the profile of Rotary in Australia and the great outcomes that we all deliver.
A key audience we aim to influence through the site is corporations and wealthy individuals who may be interested in helping to fund large Rotary projects.  If you have:
  • a great project that is in need of significant funding, or
  • contacts with a corporation or wealthy individual who may wish to support Rotary with a gift of A$50,000 or more,
Rotary Foundation Australia looks forward to supporting your endeavours by helping you to fund high-impact projects – it’s by making an impact that Rotary thrives.
What happens when you give to the Foundation? Your gift is transformed into projects that:
  • Promote peace and provide clean water and sanitation in Papua New Guinea
  • Keep students in school in Tanzania
  • Mobilize Rotarians around the world, including in the United States, to use our expertise in disease prevention and treatment to support COVID-19 vaccination efforts
  • Help mothers and children get healthy food in Guatemala
  • Continue our work toward a polio-free world, building on a recent big achievement in the African region
  • Protect the environment by training farmers in places like Taiwan in organic farming techniques
These projects are possible only when Rotary members like you take action and donate to The Rotary Foundation. Help your community and empower your fellow Rotarians around the world to make a difference by making a gift to our Foundation today.

Thank you for your service in Rotary and for helping us do good in the world.
