What is the Legacy Fund?
Each year, Rotarians in Northern Colorado donate thousands of hours in service projects, participate in community activities reaching out to our most vulnerable citizens, promote education, and represent their communities as outstanding citizens and role models. Rotary Club of Fort Collins is one of the largest service organizations in the region and, as a result, the community counts on Rotary members to help out where needed, including funding projects that align with the mission of Rotary. What hasn’t grown, however, is the club’s charitable giving, which supports critical projects in our community.
Continuing the Impact of Rotary Club of Fort Collins
The goal of the Fort Collins Rotary Club is to grow its Legacy Fund to $1 million by 2018 – the 100th anniversary of the founding of the local club. The earnings from this fund will provide a permanent source of supplemental funding for humanitarian and educational programs in and around the Fort Collins community. This exclusive local focus distinguishes the fund from The Rotary Foundation, which has a broader scope. The Rotary Club of Fort Collins Board of Directors has selected a Committee of Trustees, made up of individuals who are Club members, to provide oversight and general supervision of Legacy Fund activities and disbursements recommended to the Board of Directors, including matching grants and individual projects, to assure their conformance to the purpose of the Fund. The Committee of Trustees also establishes fundraising procedures, monitors investments, and reports on the results of Legacy Fund activities annually.
