Join us in supporting our community! Donate today!

By donating to the Rochester Rotary Charitable Trusts, you fuel our service projects and join us in building a stronger community. Much of our philanthropy focuses on two areas: individuals with disabilities through our Sunshine Campus, and inner-city youth through our partnership with Roberto Clemente School #8.

Double your impact!

Many companies match employee gifts to qualifying charitable organizations. When you make your gift to the Rochester Rotary Charitable Trusts, please check with your employer to see if they match donations.

You can give today by making a credit card gift online or by mailing a check to 180 Linden Oaks, Suite 200, Rochester, NY 14625.  If you would like to make a stock gift, please call Tracey Dreisbach at (585) 546-7435 x215.

Rochester Rotary has several fundraising events throughout the year.
