History:

 

The foundation was created by act of the Rotary club board and the bylaws and charter were written by member Mr. Frank Headley, Esq. Revisions to the Bylaws were passed and enacted in 2011.

 

The bulk of the principal endowment was granted from the Estate of Rotarian Sven Lundgaard.

 

Since then, the fund has grown to approximately $160k, through Rotary club member contributions, reinvestment of earnings and fund raising activity.Certain funds are earmarked, restricted to the projects for which the funds have been raised.

 

The Foundation trust accumulates bequests, donations and proceeds of the Bronxville Rotary Club fund raising functions, and acts to distribute these funds to the appropriate designated recipients of these fundraiser activities.

 

How can I participate in the BRCF?

 

As a new Rotarian, you will be asked to become involved in many of our club’s activities. We have projects ongoing in all the Avenues of Service of Rotary.

You are also asked to contribute a small amount along with club dues to help move these projects along financially. These contributions to the BRCF are tax deductible.

Our weekly meetings often are opportunities to recommend fund raising concepts, start matching fund drives, or simply make donations. Additionally, our annual dinner is a source of funding for the major project[s]
