Rotarians and friends who have made contributions to the Foundation will have received their annual report. Its fascinating reading! Last years Every Rotarian Every Year campaign saw total contributions of $115 million - a new record. Total assets for the Foundation have surpassed the ONE BILLION DOLLAR mark for the first time!
Polio Plus received $23.6 million from Rotarians and friends and $69.6 million in matching funds from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Here's your answer to an oft-asked question: In fiscal year 2012-2013, only 2% of Foundation expenditures went to administrative expenses and 9% to fundraising. The Foundation directed 89% of its spending to programs, far exceeding the benchmarks that independent charity-rating services view as a measure of high efficiency. The Foundation has top ratings from the American Institute of Philanthropy, Charity Navigator and the Wise Giving Alliance.
