Vancouver Rotary Foundation –
40 Years of Giving Back to the Community
The Vancouver Rotary Foundation fosters, develops, promotes, and encourages the health, education, and general welfare of the residents of Vancouver and Clark County. We give back to the community by raising funds through the annual Festival of Trees, Rotary member contributions and endowed funds.
Since its inception in 1972, the Vancouver Rotary Foundation has distributed $3 million in contributions. In 2011, we gave $67,000 in scholarships and more than $48,000 in community grants to local non-profit organizations. In 2012, we awarded $78,000 in scholarships at our annual scholarship luncheon.
The Vancouver Rotary Foundation marks its 40th anniversary in 2012. In those 40 years, the Foundation has distributed more than $1 million in scholarships. To celebrate this milestone, with your support through the Festival of Trees, the Foundation will designate even more scholarship dollars to ensure the continuing education of our community members. Thank you for supporting Vancouver Rotary Foundation Festival of Trees!
