Rotary Foundation Charity

Children in povertyThe Rotary Foundation is Rotary’s own charity. It is supported by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation and generous charitable donations from the general public who share its vision of a better world.

Rotary Foundation in the United Kingdom (RFUK) is an Associate Foundation of the international charitable trust. Based at Alcester in Warwickshire, RFUK handles Gift Aid, legacies, covenants and ordinary charity contributions from Rotarians and individuals.
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.

Rotary’s charity work has become one of the foremost non-governmental foundations with the educational support programme being the largest private scholarship endowment in the world.

The Osgoldcross and Elmet Rotary Club was successful in 2017 in applying for a global grant of £33K. The funds are being used to support the education of two rehabilitation technicians from Madagascar. Working with a Leeds based Medical Education charity OPT-In we will build on the work of the charity who support the education of Drs and Physios in Madagascar in the good rehabilitation practice. Developing competence and confidence within the Rehabilitation services in Madagascar workforce will increase the opportunities to improve the quality of care to patients from one of the poorest countries in the world.
