Please note that while the Rotary Foundation is itself a government approved charitable 501c3 organizations, Rotary clubs themselves in most cases are not 501c3 organizations, most of their financial support for various activities are activities which are in and of themselves would qualify as 501c3 activities. Accordingly most Rotary clubs do not have individual charitable designation letters from the IRS. RCC takes the position that the campaigns are for individual activities which may qualify for charitable donation deduction status. Part of our review process includes making a judgement in RCC’s sole and absolute discretion about that status. Rotary clubs by engaging RCC to perform its series of activities agrees implicitly to accept RCC’s terms and conditions. Please note that in the case of unusual or unanticipated matters and therefor not explicitly described in our written material RCC takes the position and entities including Rotary clubs accept the concept that RCC’s and its representatives best efforts are a sufficient standard of conduct in resolution of such matters.
The Foundation annually makes total grants in the $275,000,000 range to
- Promote peace
