Beneficiaries

Lincoln Rotary Club #14 Foundation is the conduit for all of our charitable giving and community service projects. In 2020, we achieved the significant milestone of having awarded more than $1.6 Million in grants, scholarships and awards since the inception of the Foundation in 1997. The Foundation's project and grant implementation plan provides for a portion of the annual earnings to be granted to community organizations through our bi-annual grant application cycle, while also setting aside a portion of those earnings to build future giving capacity and to support club “Signature Projects”. In 2010, we made a major community gift of $100,000 to help fund the Elliott Park & Playground Project as our Centennial Project. A gift of $200,000, our 2020 Signature Project, will be announced soon. In addition, through important club projects like our annual fundraising activities, we are able to provide support to major community efforts and scholarship programs on an ongoing basis.
