Beneficiaries

Lincoln Rotary Club #14 Foundation is the conduit for all of our charitable giving and community service projects. Since its inception in 1997, a significant amount of support has been provided to our community and various scholarship programs. As was our goal at inception, the fund had a cash value of more than $1,100,000 in 2010, and we made a major community gift of $100,000 to help fund the Elliott School Park & Playground Project as our Centennial Project. In 2011, we adopted a project and grant implementation plan that allows for annual spending of a portion of the annual earnings, while also setting aside a portion of those earnings for club “Signature Projects” yet to be determined. In addition, through important club projects like our auction and other fundraising activities, we are able to provide support to major community efforts and scholarship programs on an ongoing basis.
