The Edmonton Rotary Club Foundation was established in 1984 by a gift from the Club’s former secretary, Mrs. Richards. The Foundation is established as a Society with Bylaws and an independent Board of Directors. Since the creation of the Foundation, it has become a permanent endowment held at The Edmonton Community Foundation, with invested assets valued at over $1,000,000.
The income generated by this capital is used primarily for local projects with a focus on educational, cultural, humanitarian, and health needs, which meet Rotary guiding principles and areas of focus. The Foundation provides annual bursaries at University of Alberta, NAIT, Concordia, Norquest, King’s University and Grant MacEwan University. The ERCF also supports selected initiatives in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Edmonton through the Rotary Club of Edmonton Community Service Trust Fund.
Donors receive a charitable donation receipt, and their gifts may consist of cash, publicly traded securities, bequests, insurance policies and other capital instruments that meet Canada Revenue Agency guidelines.
