Founded in 1928, The Rotary Foundation is the charity of choice for Rotary’s 1,200,000 members world wide.

Monies raised are directed in six key areas producing both local and global impacts. Our most successful and sustainable projects and activities tend to fall within the following areas: Promoting Peace, Fighting Disease, Providing Clean Water, Savings Mothers and Children, Supporting Education and Growing Local Economies.

Donations to The Rotary Foundation provide tax receipts and our Foundation consistently ranks amongst the best charities by nearly 88% of all funds raised is spent directly on programs with only 12% being used for administration and fund raising expense.

When Rotarians and their friends donate to The Rotary Foundation, some of the money may come back to our community in the form of grants from the Foundation and in recent years, some of these funds have been used to build Rotary Square at Town Centre Mall and the Rotary Water Park also in Tsawwassen.

Internationally, The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen has received funding from The Rotary Foundation for projects we have supported in Uganda, Liberia, and Zimbabwe.

Donations can be made by contacting Foundation Director John Lusted by calling 604-418-4335 or online by visiting the donation page of the Foundation Website
