Every year, the Chronicle of Philanthropy ranks the top 400 nonprofit organizations in the United States. The Rotary Foundation has continued its steady growth, moving up 35 spots to 85th. The ranking is based on monetary contributions from private sources and reflects the increasing generosity of those who support Rotary's mission. According to the Chronicle, the Foundation received $239,576,000 in 20l3, a 32.4 percent increase from the previous year. 

The Foundation recently earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the largest and most prestigious independent evaluator of nonprofits in the United States. In the 20 l3-14 Rotary year, 92 percent of the Foundations expenditures were applied to programs, with only 6 percent spent on fundraising and 2 percent on administrative expenses. The Foundation funded $23.5 million in district grants and $47.3 million in global grants. These grants support local and international humanitarian projects as well as scholarships. 

Together with its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative  (GPEI), Rotary has led the effort to end polio, contributing more than $1.3 billion to the initiative since its outset. When an outbreak threatened the Horn of Africa and the Middle East in 2013, Rotary provided emergency funds, including a $500,000 rapid-response grant for Somalia and a $500,000 grant to the World Health Organization (WHO) to cover operational costs in the Middle East. As a result, the outbreak in the Horn of Africa slowed, and Syria reported only one case of polio in the first half of 2014.
