On November 15th, the AFP recognised The Rotary Foundation as The World’s Outstanding Foundation for 2016The highly-regarded award places The Rotary Foundation in the illustrious company of previous winners, The Kellogg, Komen and MacArthur Foundations. 
“While almost everyone is familiar with Rotary, not everyone may realize just how much of an impact Rotary and The Rotary Foundation have had on countless people and communities across the globe,” said Jason Lee, AFP president and CEO. “On behalf of the entire charitable sector and people around the world, all of us at AFP are honored to be able to recognize The Rotary Foundation as our 2016 Outstanding Foundation.”
