Designating your gift

You can direct your Annual Fund gift to SHARE, the World Fund, or an area of focus fund.

SHARE is the primary source of funding for Rotary Foundation programs. It's also the only Annual Fund designation that generates funding for the District Designated Fund. Rotary districts use their DDF to pay for the Foundation activities they choose to participate in.

World Fund contributions provide the Foundation’s portion of funding for approved grants. Through the World Fund, the Foundation Trustees can allocate funds where the needs are the greatest.  

Areas of focus contributions provide the Foundation's portion of funding for activities addressing critical humanitarian issues and needs. Learn more.

All options are available for one-time or recurring contributions.
