The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education,
and the alleviation of poverty.
After his very information talk about The Rotary Foundation, PDG Jerry was presented with a copy of an article written by Arch Klumph, Rotary International president in 1916-1917 by club secretary Dan Clark. It was at the 1917 Rotary Convention that Arch Klumph proposed to set up an endowment “for the purpose of doing good in the world.” In 1928, it was renamed The Rotary Foundation, and it became a distinct entity within Rotary International.
