Goals
 
Seek out relevant Rotary sponsored programs/projects that actively involve Rotarians in the administration, direction, financial support, management and/or volunteer participation.  Ensure the relevancy, successful implementation, sustainability and viability of programs/projects utilizing best practices concerning effective, efficient, ethical and judicious use of funds, resources and personnel in the spirit of Rotary's: 
 
Motto - Service Above Self
and
The Four-Way Test - Of the things we think, say or do
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 
How Rotarians benefit by contributing to the Foundation:
Joining with Rotarians and other individuals in supporting the Foundation's charitable giving and grants results in a greater impact than might otherwise be possible.  Foundation gifts and grants focus public attention on community/regional concerns and concentrates the Club's attention on mobilizing available resources to effectively generate common solutions.  Tax deductibility of gifts helps generate more resources than otherwise might be possible.  The Foundation is managed by a volunteer group of Rotarians, thus minimizing fundraising and administrative expenses.
