As the first organization to envision a polio-free world through mass immunization of children, Rotary believes the decision to vaccinate is a humanitarian imperative. The Rotary International Board of Directors and Rotary Foundation Trustees believe that:

  1. Global vaccination is the path to ending the pandemic, and we strongly encourage vaccination for all individuals, including our members.
  2. Misinformation hinders the fight against COVID-19, and we are committed to providing our members with science-based information.
  3. Rotary is engaged in assuring equity in vaccine access to all people. Through joint efforts with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance we are leveraging our frontline experience with polio to facilitate vaccine delivery.
  4. Rotary salutes health care workers everywhere as they continue to provide lifesaving services. We encourage clubs to offer recognition and encouragement to these heroes.
  5. Rotary and Rotaract clubs are encouraged to redouble their efforts to support COVID-19 prevention and vaccination efforts.
  6. As one of the greatest advances of modern medicine, vaccines are safe, effective and save millions of lives each year. They have eliminated or controlled numerous diseases such as polio, smallpox, measles, and Ebola, and now, there is the opportunity to end the COVID-19 pandemic through vaccination.
  7. The eradication of polio remains the goal of the highest order for Rotary. We can continue to apply the lessons we have learned in fighting polio to COVID-19 response efforts.
Our club will be using the
District PR Grant to place an order with
Each member can choose an item and have the club subsidize $25 of the price.  There's lots of clothes to choose from, and any "outward facing" item with the club name/logo should qualify.  "Outward facing" refers to any item designed for the public to see.
Shirts, hats, license plate frames, etc., qualify. 
Items for in-home or in-club use do not.

Global Grants
What makes a successful Global Grant Application?
Consult with local experts early in the planning process to build a strong project plan and global grant application. The district resource network (see below) can help. 
To be approved, your application must clearly describe how your project, scholarship, or vocational training team: 
  • ✓  Is sustainable — include plans for long-term success after the global grant funds have been spent 
  • ✓  Includes measurable goals 
  • ✓  Aligns with one of Rotary's areas of focus 
  • ✓  Responds to real community needs 
  • ✓  Actively involves Rotarians and community members 
  • ✓  Meets the eligibility requirements in the grants terms and conditions 
The Rotary Foundation’s grant model empowers Rotarians to continue advancing world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the implement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty!
