The Niles Rotary Club funds and manages a charitable trust fund for our local charitable projects. All of the funds we raise go into this foundation, which is then used to support designated projects. The operational expense of the foundation is carried by the Club budget. In some cases we can get matching funds from our Rotary District and Rotary International to augment this outreach.

If you are a charity or community organization interested in applying for a grant, learn more here.
