The Rotary Foundation

"The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.
Since it was founded more than 100 years ago, the Foundation has spent more than $4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.

With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world.

Our mission:
The mission of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty."

Sonia Saleh has worked both in the for-profit and not-for-profit world. During her hospitality career she served as a board member for national, regional, and local nonprofits. All this experience and knowledge has given her the unique expertise and understanding of both executives and board members serving nonprofits. 

She uses these gifts to teach, train, and coach executives and board members of nonprofit organizations in fundraising. She has her own company, Uplifting Nonprofits, and has created a course called “Unleash your Inner Fundraiser” that helps individuals optimize their fundraising efforts while doubling their fundraising results. The course is a combination of new thinking with brain science and learning how to move beyond your comfort zone, to cultivate your own personal style to attract and build relationships to benefit you and the organization. 

She speaks 3 languages Arabic, French, and English, and travels regularly, except for now. She lives to travel and eat potato chips.
