For decades, eradicating polio has been a rallying cry for Rotarians all over the world. Rotary International is a partner with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the Centers for Disease Control in providing a vaccine to eradicate this crippling disease. With 22,000 clubs across 161 countries, a multi-tiered volunteer structure spanning the globe and a cohesive plan were required to raise the necessary funds.
CCS conducted a planning study to help The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International take the first step toward raising the funds to eradicate polio. The PolioPlus campaign raised more than $247 million on a $120 million goal.
More recently, CCS partnered again with The Rotary Foundation to conduct a fundraising assessment that included a review of the role and utilization of the global Rotary volunteer structure, a review of the fund development staffing structure, major gift prospect identification, and strategic planning to help the foundation strengthen and accelerate fundraising.
Rotary has helped reduce polio cases by 99.9% since 1979, and continues to work toward eradication.
