Our Club Foundation was formed in 1993, four years after the formation of the Club. The Foundation was established for the purpose of:
· Providing a vehicle to be the fundraising and distribution arm of the Club
· To provide a means for members to make tax deductible contributions that would be distributed for community and/or worldwide causes
Over the years, the money raised through various fundraising activities (Golf Events, Beer Tasting Events, Flower Sales, etc.) are managed through the Foundation to maximize those funds to serve others. Each Rotary year, which begins July 1, a process begins to make grants available to organizations. Each cause must be sponsored by an active club member. These are then presented to the Club Board who will invite the club members to approve the organizations that will receive grants.
- Member proposals are due by December 13, 2016.
- Organization Grant Applications are due Wednesday January 4, 2017 at noon.
