The Rotary Foundation Trustees and RI Board of Directors unanimously approved adding a new area of focus: Supporting the Environment. With a focus on the environment, Rotary has provided its members another avenue to provide positive change in the world, increasing our impact. 

More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Supporting the environment becomes Rotary's seventh area of focus, which are categories of service activities supported by global grants. It joins peace building and conflict prevention; disease prevention and treatment; water, sanitation, and hygiene; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; and community economic development.

Grant applications for projects will be accepted beginning on July 1, 2021.
