Making a Gift to the Permanent Fund

The Permanent Fund enables individuals to combine their gifts into a significant force to address the world's greatest needs for generations to come.

The initial target of US$200 million for the Permanent Fund was surpassed six years ahead of schedule. Our next target is US$1 billion by 2025.

The dramatic growth of the Permanent Fund has helped increase program support more than six-fold since 1994-1995.  During the 2004-05 Rotary year, more than US$4.5 million from the Permanent Fund was made available to support the programs of The Rotary Foundation.
