Rotary's US$100 Million Challenge, a three-year fundraising commitment, is the Rotary Foundation's response to the $100 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help eradicate polio. Every dollar given to PolioPlus during the next three years will be counted toward the $100 million match.

Rotary volunteers travel from around the world to join in the global fight to eradicate polio in Africa and Asia. These volunteers - all members of Rotary, a humanitarian service organization that has made polio eradication its top philanthropic goal - administer the drops of oral polio vaccine to children, deliver the vaccine to remote villages and educate families on the importance of protecting children against polio.
