Annual Fund

The Annual Fund makes it possible for Rotary clubs to transform lives worldwide. Your generous support funds local and international projects that advance The Rotary Foundation’s mission. All contributions to the fund are spent on quality Rotary projects. Help support these projects. You can contribute online using the link to the left, or print out the TRF Contribution Form (123-EN). If you wish to make a recurring gift, see the section Rotary Direct on the main Foundation 2019-2020 page. Contact your club's Rotary Foundation Chair or Jerry Hardy, Chair of the District Foundation Committee, for more information.

Designating Your Gift

You can direct your Annual Fund gift to SHARE, the World Fund, or an area of focus fund.

SHARE is the primary source of funding for Rotary Foundation programs. It is also the only Annual Fund designation that generates funding for the District Designated Fund (DDF). Rotary districts use their DDF to pay for the Foundation activities they choose to participate in.
World Fund contributions provide the Foundation’s portion of funding for approved grants. Through the World Fund, the Foundation Trustees can allocate funds where the needs are the greatest.
Areas of focus contributions provide the Foundation's portion of funding for activities addressing critical humanitarian issues and needs. Learn more.
All options are available for one-time or recurring contributions.
