Areas of Focus

Your club’s foundation contributions support one of these 7 areas of focus:

  1. Promoting peace
  2. Fighting disease
  3. Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  4. Saving mothers and children
  5. Supporting education
  6. Growing local economies
  7. Environment (new area of focus)

Please use something like this on all event and/or project material. These acknowledgements are great for press releases, posters, flyers and social media posts.

“This project was made possible by The Rotary Foundation, Rotary District 7770 and thoughtful contributions of members like you. Thank you!”

Or you can show the area of focus the monies go to.
