Help Rotary spread holiday cheer here at home
Giving is more important than ever
     For more than a decade, the community has joined with us to help provide holiday cheer for local families in need.
     Once again, the pandemic has changed HOW we do this, but it hasn’t changed the WHY. 
     In replacement of the annual Rotary Holiday Basket Fundraising event, we are raising funds virtually – by asking our friends and community members for help.
     All proceeds will go to local food pantries and agencies like the Skaneateles Outreach, which help area families in need.
Please help us make the season bright for others.
The Skaneateles Rotary Foundation, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation established in 2007 by the Skaneateles Rotary Club .  The Foundation operates exclusively for the benefit of charitable, educational, health, welfare and recreation needs of our community in accordance with section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue service.  Thus, all contributions made payable to the Foundation are tax deductible contributions to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Rotary Facts
Rotary unites people from all continents and cultures who take action to deliver real, long-term solutions to our world’s most persistent issues. Through volunteering, our 1.2 million members make lifelong friendships that transcend political and cultural boundaries and foster global understanding and respect. In addition to our 35,000 clubs, Rotary also offers expanded service opportunities including:
Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self. There are more than 20,300 Interact clubs in 159 countries. (Click Here for the SHS Interact Club)
Rotaract clubs bring together young adults, starting at age 18, to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service.
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. Each year, Rotary members invest hundreds of millions of dollars and countless volunteer hours to promote health, peace and prosperity in communities across the globe. Rotary members take action by providing access to clean water snd sanitation, supporting education, preventing and treating disease, saving mothers and children and growing local economies.
Ending polio
For more than 30 years, Rotary has been the driving force in the effort to end polio worldwide. Alongside our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we have achieved a 99.9 percent reduction in polio cases, with less than 200 cases of wild polio reported in 2019 compared with 350,000 a year in the late 1980s. Our members have contributed $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect more than 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Today, just two countries continue to report cases of wild poliovirus, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Rotary remains committed to ending polio, and will raise $50 million per year, with every dollar to be matched with two additional dollars through a matching agreement with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
History
For 116 years, Rotary members have been addressing challenges around the world. It started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of its members. (Click Here to learn about Skaneateles Rotary Club's history)
