The Beaverton Rotary Foundation

The Foundation is the financial base for most Club Projects and Programs.

  • We have given more than 50,000 Beaverton 4th grade students a personalized dictionary.
  • We have awarded dozens of high school graduates more than $700,000 in post-high school scholarships for college or vocational education.
  • We have shipped over two million books around the world to schools serving children in third world countries.
  • We have distributed nearly $425,000 in grants to our community partners for a variety of projects that may never have come to be without Rotary's help.
  • We sponsored more than 100 Rotary youth exchange students to live a year abroad and learn how to increase world understanding by hosting youth from other countries and with a Rotary family.
  • We have funded nearly $350,000 international grants focused on building capacity for others to create their businesses and become self-sustaining.
  • We donated nearly $350,000 to pay for dental work for economically disadvantaged children in our community.
  • After more than four decades, Rotary's efforts to eradicate polio worldwide is nearly complete.

Beaverton Rotary welcomes anyone in our community to join us in creating a better, more peaceful world.  If you'd like more information go to About us.
