Often called The Rotary International Foundation to avoid confusion with Poulsbo Rotary's local foundation (Poulsbo North-Kitsap Rotary Foundation), The Rotary Foundation's mission is to enable Rotarians around to world to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
 
The Foundation was born in 1917, when R.I. President Arch Klumph proposed the creation of an endowment, "For the purpose of doing good in the word." This year marks its 100th anniversary, and Poulsbo Rotary is celebrating this event!
