Rotary Foundation Australia connects generous corporations, philanthropies and individuals with Rotary projects that make a significant difference for Australian communities.
Rotary is focused on several critically important causes that make a significant difference to the lives of people in need, in Australia and around the world. These causes align closely with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Rotary Foundation Australia gives you the opportunity to invest in humanitarian outcomes that are very tightly aligned with your purpose. Our donors can choose which cause (or causes) they wish to support and large donors can engage with us to direct their support to specific Rotary projects.
The Causes Are: Promoting peace: Fighting disease: Providing clean water: Saving mothers and children: Supporting education: Growing local economies: Protecting the environment: Ending polio
