Rotary was challenged with a match by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to raise $50 million dollars for Polio Plus in the 2019-2020 year which ended June 30th. The great news is that Rotarians met the challenge and the reward is an additional $100 million dollars from the Gates Foundation toward our efforts to eradicate polio! 
 
You can contribute to the Rotary International Foundation in many ways, one of which is directly to Polio Plus. Contributions to both Polio Plus and to the Annual Fund (this is the fund that comes back to the district in matching grants) count as donations toward your Paul Harris Fellowship. For more information on the Foundation, Polio efforts and to sign up to donate to the Foundation sign-in (or create a log in) to My Rotary https://www.rotary.org/en/about-rotary/rotary-foundation.
 
For questions about the foundation please contact Foundation Chair, Tony Buhr.
