Our Foundation

The Rotary Foundation of Cincinnati was formed in 1961. It was founded to provide the leadership, funding and resources necessary to support the local and global humanitarian efforts of the Rotary Club of Cincinnati. Its primary goal is to support children, particularly those whose future development is impaired by physical, cultural, emotional, financial and social obstacles.
