Beach Crime Solvers
Beach Education Foundation
your ordinary night for Rotarians or teens
“It is hard
to believe people would dedicate time to us that don’t
have to,” said one teen at the Virginia Beach Youth
Crisis Home. “I want to make changes in my life so
I can help somebody like me. I had a lot fun."
Virginia Beach Rotary Club members have
volunteered time at the home once a quarter for years to
provide friendship, fun, pizza and Bingo. Read more
Foundation Message From Patti Phillips
global reach of Rotary International and how we as Rotarians
contribute to lives in our local community and in communities
around the world is phenominal. Without the Rotary
Foundation, RI would not be able to establish such wonderful
programs as the eradication of polio, the ambassadorial
scholarship programs and humanitarian and health programs
just to name a few. The Rotary Foundation is what sets Rotary
and YOU apart from all other service organizations. Read

less worried home owner in Virginia Beach
worried 75-year-old Virginia Beach woman is now sitting
comfortably in her home. Gone are the threats of eviction
from her trailer park landlord due to lack of maintenance.
Rotarians Jim Flinchum and Cliff Bateman learned of the
situation through Catholic Charities. They immediately decided
that the twice-widowed woman who lives on $500 a month and
suffers severe respiratory problems would not be removed.

receives $350 Million Donation
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
awarded The Rotary Foundation a challenge grant of $350
million to support Rotary International's PolioPlus program.
Rotary will attempt to match the grant dollar for dollar
over the next three years. This is the largest, single grant
ever given to a volunteer organization and represents a
tremendous validation of the approach and success of PolioPlus,
one of Rotary's flagship programs since 1985. Rotarians
have donated time, effort and $633 million to eradicate
polio from the world. The program's success has wiped the
disease off the planet, except in four countries. Let's
work to see that this challenge grant accomplishes our goal
-- 100% eradication of polio worldwide.
