Announcing our GoFundMe Campaign for our upcoming Rotary Dictionary Project!
Educators and researchers see the ownership of a dictionary as a key to better reading, speech and writing. These skills help students' performances in other subjects as well. For many kids in underserved schools, this will be the first book they will own. Giving a dictionary is the simplest thing we can do to dramatically improve education opportunities for children born into such families.
What will you be supporting?
Rotary International has identified specific causes to target which maximize local and global beneficial impact.
Through global grants and other resources, Rotary Clubs focus our service efforts in these areas.
THE GLOBAL EFFORT TO ERADICATE POLIO
Only two countries on earth have significant portions of their populations infected with polio - Afghanistan and Pakistan, down from more than 125 countries in 1988. This is the result of years of global effort to eradicate this debilitating but easily preventable illness. Rotary International is a leader in this effort. Although only two nations report new cases of polio now, because of the mobility of world populations and refugee crises, polio may break free again. Complete eradication is close at hand.
PEACE & CONFLICT PREVENTION/RESOLUTION
Today, 60 million people are displaced by armed conflict or persecution. Through our partnerships with several leading universities, Rotary Peace Fellows develop the skills to strengthen peace efforts, train local leaders to prevent and mediate conflict, and support long-term peace building in areas affected by conflict. We provide up to 100 peace fellowships per year at Rotary Peace Centers. Learn how Rotary projects address the structural causes of conflict
DISEASE PREVENTION & TREATMENT
More than 100 million people are pushed into poverty each year because of medical costs. We aim to improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in underdeveloped areas. Our members educate and mobilize communities to help prevent the spread of major diseases such as polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. Many of our projects ensure that medical training facilities are located where the workforce lives. See how Rotary projects provide low-cost health care
WATER & SANITATION
More than 2.5 billion people lack access to adequate sanitation facilities. At least 3,000 children die each day from diarrheal diseases caused by unsafe water. Our projects give communities the ability to develop and maintain sustainable water and sanitation systems and support studies related to water and sanitation. See how Rotary is building sustainable clean water and sanitation facilities
MATERNAL & CHILD HEALTH
At least 7 million children under the age of five die each year due to malnutrition, poor health and inadequate sanitation. We provide immunizations and antibiotics to babies, improve access to medical care and help train health care providers. This is not just a third world problem. Locally, the Rotary E-Club of the Peninsula supports RotaCare, which provides cost-free access to medical care for those who need but can not afford it in the Monterey Peninsula area.
BASIC EDUCATION & LITERACY
Sixty-seven million children worldwide have no access to education and more than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.

ECONOMIC & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
Nearly 1.4 billion employed people live on less than $1.25 a day. We carry out service projects that enhance economic and community development and develop opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old. We also help strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities. See how Rotary helps workers achieve better wages and working conditions
Rotary is Effective
Ours is one of 34,000 local Rotary Clubs around the globe. Rotary International leverages this global outreach to develop & carry out sustainable humanitarian projects and provide scholarships and professional training opportunities that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, sustain mothers and children, improve education, and strengthen local economies.
The Rotary Foundation, through its partnership with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is a world wide leader in the effort to eradicate Polio. Since 1988, Rotary Foundation has helped immunize over 2.5 billion children, reducing the incidence of polio by 99 percent and eradicating it from all but three countries. Rotary has contributed more than $1 billion and many thousands of hours to eradication effort..
Rotary is Efficient
Rotary Clubs are volunteer organizations. Local Rotary Clubs do not have paid staff or officers.
Because of this, local Rotary clubs, including ours, have zero administrative costs, ensuring more of your donations are used to actually advance causes.
Rotary International receives a rating of 96.31 (out of 100) from Charity Navigator and rates highest among similar non-profit organizations on percentage of contributions spent on programs and services (90.8%).
