Cleveland Rotary Foundation Annual Fund Campaign

Help us make our goal of 100% participation! Consider the many activities of our club – particularly those that are of interest to you – when deciding on your donation. Is it recognizing an individual or organization for upholding Rotary’s ideals of service above self or the four-way test? Is it supporting the education and personal growth of students in Cleveland’s schools or providing desks and clean water for children we may never meet in far-away countries? Is it making Cleveland a welcoming city with beautiful plazas, gardens, and greenways or tending to its homeless by providing a warm meal or a sleeping cot? Or perhaps it’s something else. Whatever the motivation, please give generously at a level that is meaningful to you. Checks made payable to Cleveland Rotary Foundation or visit our website and click on donate to use credit card
