November 1, The Rotary Foundation Committee chair Mike Sollenberger overviewed the Rotary Foundation, and introduced Robin Steele, Satellite member and Chair of our International Projects and Grants (IP&G) Committee, who updated members on RCFC's projects and grants over the last few years.

The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty. To do this, Rotarians identify and address the greatest educational and humanitarian needs in the world, with an outreach greater than that of the United Nations.  Through  the expertise and efforts of Rotarians, the Foundation carries out effective and sustainable projects, in many cases where political agencies and religious groups cannot do so. In looking to the future, the Foundation considers projects within 6 areas of focus, involving both our local and international communities.
