The Rotary #14 Foundation - Local

The Rotary #14 Foundation serves as the financial vehicle for all of our Club's charitable service on a local level. We are honored by our Rotarians' generosity to build our Club's Foundation for almost 25 years. 
Members' contributions to the Rotary #14 Foundation support current projects and help us build a greater vision for the future of our Rotary Club and our community as we look toward the next Rotary year and beyond. 
The Rotary #14 Foundation provides for a portion of the annual earnings to be granted to community organizations while also setting aside a portion of those earnings to build future giving capacity and to support "Signature Projects" each decade. 
In the 2019-2020 Rotary year, your support towards the Rotary #14 Foundation provided the following:
  • $16,000 in support of these Club projects: Rotary Youth Exchange, Miller Math Award, Martin Legacy Fund for polio eradication, International Student Picnic, and a dictionary to every 4th grade student in Lincoln.
  • $24,000 in grant funding to support local organizations such as Girls Inc of Lincoln for college and career prep programming to high risk students, Rabble Mill dba The Bay, Boys and Girls Clubs, CEDARS Youth Services, Gathering Place, Tabitha Meals on Wheels, and a behavioral/mental health program for LPS elementary students through Lutheran Family Services.
  • $20,000 towards affordable housing in the South of Downtown neighborhood.
  • $16,000 in COVID-19 relief funding plus $3,000 in designated new funds by Rotarians supporting critical needs in our community for those who are facing impacts related to the pandemic.
  • $10,000 for planting trees in the Everett neighborhood.
  • $10,000 in need-based college scholarship funding to four Lincoln students.
  • $17,000 in projects selected by the Club’s World Fellowship and Community Service Committee directed towards our international community including education on sustainable living in Namibia, stocking a pond with fish for a renewable protein food source in Zambia, and medical clinics and water tanks in Kenya.
That's $113,000 in total giving just this year, a level only made possible by the contributions and support of all Rotarians. 

Please consider donating $50, $80, $110 or more in honor of our Club’s 110th year to the Rotary #14 Foundation.  Your donation is what makes our Club’s charitable projects and community giving possible.
