Rotary International's Endowment Fund



The Endowment Fund enables individuals to combine their gifts into a significant force to address the world's greatest needs for generations to come.

The initial target of US$200 million for the Endowment Fund was surpassed six years ahead of schedule. Our next target is US$1 billion by 2025.

The dramatic growth of the Endowment Fund has helped increase program support five-fold since 1996-97. During the 2002-03 Rotary year, more than US$6.6 million from the Endowment Fund will be spent in direct support of the programs of The Rotary Foundation.
