Customize Your Legacy
You can be an important part of the Foundation’s next century of serving humanity by including a gift to Rotary’s endowment in your estate plans. You may personalize your legacy with a separately identified fund that bears your name, your family’s name, or that of a loved one, and with larger gifts it may be possible to more-narrowly direct the use of the funds to specific programs or regions. The minimum amount to establish a named fund is USD $25,000. There are many ways for your bequest to have positive impact in the future as the spending portion of your gift may be directed to any of Rotary’s programs which include:
  • Unrestricted (World Fund)
  • SHARE (World fund and district designated fund
  • Rotary Peace Centers
  • One or more areas of focus:
    • Peacebuilding and conflict prevention
    • Disease Prevention and treatment
    • Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
    • Maternal and Child health
    • Basic Education and Literacy
    • Community Economic Development
    • The Environment
