The Rotary Foundation’s the 7th Area of Focus
In 2020 The Rotary Foundation Trustees and Rotary International Board of Directors unanimously approved adding a new Area of Focus: supporting the environment.
The AOFs help The Rotary Foundation focus its spending on Global Grants, ensuring that money spent is focused on its top priorities, and is done in a sustainable way. The Rotary Foundation uses the goals to establish:
- Projects and activities for global grants
- Possible strategic partners for global grants
- Evaluation criteria for club- and district-developed global grants
- A system for measuring outcome for all global grants
Foundation Month in November is observed by Rotary Clubs the world over, and encourages members to contribute the dollars that enable The Rotary Foundation “to do good” in the world.
One tool that helps members direct their donations to an Area of Focus that they choose is Rotary Direct. https://my.rotary.org/en/rotary-direct
