The Rotary Foundation:  The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary International, we tap into a global network of Rotarians and others who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact. Strong financial oversight, a stellar charity rating, and a unique funding model mean that we make the very most of your contribution. Give and become a part of Rotary’s life-changing work!
 
Donors to the Rotary Foundation are credited for their contributions and may be recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow when their cumulative donations exceed $1,000.00.
Bidders will be requested to complete an information card to ensure proper allocation of their bids, delivery of receipts and recognition for their purchases. Payments by winning bidders are due the night of the auction and may be made by cash, check or credit card.  Credit card purchases will incur an additional fee (less than 4%) to cover the charges incurred by the processing service.
