The Bloomington Rotary Foundation is the 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to supporting the mission of the Bloomington Rotary Club. It is supported solely by contributions from Rotarians and friends of the foundation.
Guided by a Board of Directors made up of members of Bloomington Rotary, the Foundation manages an endowment and supports current club initiatives within our community.
The Bloomington Rotary Foundation was established in 1987. In the early years, the Foundation’s funding came from gifts in memory of deceased members. In 1998, it established an endowment fund at the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County, in order to ensure the continuation of Rotary community service activities in perpetuity. In 2013, BRF added the opportunity for members to make a $20 donation each quarter as part of their dues, with the initial proceeds helping to fund the Club’s Centennial projects in 2018. Since 2001, the Foundation has contributed $182,000 to scholarships and nonprofit organizations, including nearly $27,000 to Teachers Warehouse.
