Peter Woodhead – Chair Foundation Services

Rotary Foundation is the charity set up specifically to support the efforts of Rotary International to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

We will continue our active assistance in the Rotary Schools Technology Tournament.

Rotary Schools Technology Tournament 2013

This is in addition to supporting the Gates Foundation ‘End Polio Now’ campaign through a voluntary addition to the club membership subscription.

Where Rotary Foundation or other grants are available, the committee will apply for such grants for the benefit of the club and the targeted charities

The club does not currently actively support other Rotary Foundation activities which include those listed below, however we are willing to consider responding to specific appeals as circumstances and resources permit.

  • Health-related projects:  eg: Wheelchair Foundation, Aquabox
  • Youth activities (eg: Young Chef, Young Musician, Young Artist, Youth Speaks, Interact Clubs, Kids Out, Young Writers’ Award).
  • Education  (eg: Ambassadorial Scholars, Rotary Peace Fellows, Group Study Exchange (GSE) students, University Teachers, Grants Alumni (ex Ambassadorial etc)
  • The Communication of the goals of Foundation of both RI and District activities to all club members
