In 1990 the Club created a separate legal entity operating as a tax exempt 501(c)3 charitable organization. The purpose of this Arizona non-profit corporation is to receive, disburse and administer funds for charitable, civic and educational purposes which will promote the ideals of Rotary International.
The Club Foundation's focus has been to collect donations from club members and outside contributors in order to fund legacy projects which benefit the local quality of life. Major projects have included the Fountain Hills Rotary Splash Park and Musical Instrument Park as well as the Rotary Clock on the Avenue of the Fountains.
Over the years the Foundation has also made major contributions to the local Boys and Girls Club for a kitchen, a garden, and gymnasium sound system. Another long time beneficiary has been the Extended Hands Food Bank for which we funded a kitchen, food cooler and food collecting trucks.
