Eradicate Polio

Rotary’s top philanthropic goal is to eradicate polio worldwide. To date, Rotary has contributed nearly US$850 million and countless volunteer hours to the protection of more than two billion children in 122 countries. Rotary is currently working to raise an additional $200 million toward a $355 million challenge grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. These efforts are providing much needed operational support, medical personnel, laboratory equipment and educational materials for health workers and parents. In addition, Rotary has played a major role in decisions by donor governments to contribute over $4 billion to the effort. For more information, visit www.rotary.org/endpolio.
