Two Foundations, One Common Purpose

"To bring help and hope to those in need"

The Rotary Club of Calgary supports both the Calgary Rotary Clubs Foundation (CRCF) and The Rotary Foundation.  

Calgary Rotary Clubs Foundation (CRCF)

When you give to the CRCF, you add to the capital managed by the CRCF on behalf of all participating Calgary area clubs. The CRCF then makes an annual distribution to those clubs, proportionate to the Club’s capital account. Much, but by no means all, of our capital is from the Mayhood legacy.  The Rotary Club of Calgary receives in the order of $800,000 annually from the CRCF.  As the capital account grows, so does our distribution. Those funds are used by our club to fund the many local and international projects chosen by your Board of Directors each year.
To donate, use the CRCF Contribution Form on the left or go to the CRCF Foundation website or call the office at 403-398-9969.

The Rotary Foundation (TRF)

The Rotary Foundation's annual program fund returns 50% of your contributions to our District for use in its designated projects.  The balance is used by RI for its worldwide services. When you give to TRF, you support the good work of Rotary around the world. In addition to your individual giving to TRF, the Mayhood legacy provides approximately $700,000 annually to TRF. A portion of those givings now returns each year to our District for use in District chosen projects. 
To donate, go to The Rotary Foundation's donation page or call the office at 403-398-9969.


The Mayhood Honour Roll recognizes the extraordinary generosity of the Mayhoods, as well as the past and continuing generosity of Rotary Club of Calgary members in support of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International (TRF), and the Calgary Rotary Clubs Foundation (CRCF).  See the full story.
