Our Finances

We are responsible and transparent with our funds.

As a global organization that operates in nearly every country in the world and deals in 29 currencies, Rotary takes stewardship of its funds seriously.

Our money is spent on life-changing, sustainable grants, as well as programs and services that support our members’ transformative work. We have invested $3 billion in thousands of projects over the past 100 years.

Financial structure

The Rotary Foundation is organized as a public charity operated exclusively for charitable purposes and governed by a Board of Trustees. The operations of Rotary International, a member organization, are overseen by its Board of Directors.

The headquarters of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation are in Evanston, Illinois, USA. We have associate foundations in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, and the United Kingdom.

Financial reports

We publish an annual report, audited financial statements, and our federal tax returns each year.

Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International are separate entities with distinct reporting requirements. Under United States tax law, they are both tax-exempt organizations.
