Future Vision

Rotary Changes How Clubs Apply for, Receive Grants

In anticipation of The Rotary Foundation’s 100-year anniversary in 2017, the Trustees set out to develop a plan to move the Foundation toward its second century of service.

The plan reflects the desires and interests of Rotarians worldwide to give the Foundation a more sustainable and visible impact in the world. The plan is simple and flexible, allowing Rotarians to apply for grants online.

The Future Vision Plan is intended to

• Simplify Foundation programs and processes consistent with the mission

• Focus Rotarian service efforts where they will have the greatest impact by addressing priority world needs that are relevant to Rotarians

• Offer funding options to help achieve both global and local goals • Increase the sense of ownership at the district and club levels by transferring more decisions to the districts and their member clubs

• Advance understanding of the Foundation’s work and enhance Rotary’s public image.
