Our Foundation

Formally known as the Campbell San Jose West Rotary Foundation, the Club Foundation is our club’s local not-for-profit fundraising and charitable giving partner.

Each year, our Rotary Club raises money through fundraising activities, special events, and individual giving. Our local foundation also “reinvests” a portion of its annual financial gain, while also distributing a variety of grants and scholarships.

Please note: Although they both accept tax-deductible charitable donations, our local Foundation and The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International are completely separate entities.
