The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to
advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the
improvement of health, the support of education, and the
alleviation of poverty.
The Paul Harris Society is named after the founder of Rotary
International. The society recognizes friends of The Rotary
Foundation who annually contribute $1,000 or more to the Annual
Programs Fund, PolioPlus, and other approved Foundation grant
The Macomb Centennial Morning Rotary Club has 12 Paul Harris
Fellows and the number continues to grow each year.
Some of the international projects supported through the Rotary
Foundation include Polio Plus, a program that has immunized 2
billion children worldwide against this crippling disease. We
won't rest until it is eradicated. We're also involved in
humanitarian grants to bring fresh water to all areas of the
world, and an international exchange program, group study
exchange and ambassadorial scholarships - each designed to
advance world understanding, peace and goodwill.
Rotary is also active in local communities with matching grants
for community service projects. Rotary also sponsors Rotaract
Clubs, a service club for young men and women ages 18-35 which
serve as "partners in service" to Rotary.
