The Rotary Foundation enables Rotary members, through Grants, to advance world understanding of goodwill, peace, through improvement of health, education and alleviation of poverty worldwide.
It is supported solely by contributions from Rotary members and friends of the Foundation.
This support makes possible the projects, funded with Foundation grants.
'Polio Plus', a Rotary project, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to eradicate polio from the world, has immunised 2.5 billion children against polio, and the incidence has decreased 99.9%.
What impact can one donation have?
For as little as 60 cents, a child can be protected from polio.
$50 can provide clean water to help fight waterborne illness.
$500 can launch an antibullying campaign and create a safe environment for children
Rotarians are encouraged to become 'Centurions', by donating $100.00 p.a, towards the eradication of polio worldwide.

"Although I have been a Rotarian for over 30 years I am still amazed by the commitment of my fellow Manly Rotarians to helping those in our community in need"
"Four years ago I felt the need to offer something to the community and people who needed support. I was so warmly welcomed by Manly Rotary Club members that I decided to join immediately. Since that time I have have been involved in numerous projects to help our community and travelled to Kenya as a volunteer at an Orphanage that had been founded by a lady school teacher Rotarian in Queensland. What a great experience it has been over the last four years! "
Fun and Rewarding
"Finding local young people for Rotary sponsored scholarships is both fun and rewarding. It is an investment in the future of Manly. And doing it as a team makes it even better."
"The Rotary Manly Fun Run & Walk is a community event that I have enjoyed as a participant for a number of years. I wanted to give back and so I joined the Rotary Club to be part of the team making this great community event happen. (We have a fabulous vision for the future of this run!) I enjoy that as a Club we focus on raising funds for our local community but we also support excellent international projects as well.
Get involved - You’ll be glad you did!"
