For immediate release:

The Calgary Rotary Clubs Foundation is pleased to announce that Member Rotary Clubs in Calgary were recently the recipients of over $2,340,000 from the contributions and investments managed by the Foundation on behalf of all the clubs.

Jim Fitzowich, Chair of the Calgary Rotary Clubs Foundation, said the funds are critical for use by our clubs in support of Calgary non-profit agencies and individuals in need. “The COVID pandemic has underscored how important community is for our social, education and health-related causes. Calgary Rotarians are proud to come together in service to those who need financial assistance,” Fitzowich said.

The Calgary Rotary Clubs Foundation was started in 1972 and through the generosity of Rotarians who made gifts both large and small, the fund has grown to over $55 million.

Fitzowich said the Foundation, through our participating clubs, is involved in all quadrants of the City. “Our involvement covers a wide range of needs. From helping seniors with access to medical equipment to a comprehensive stay-in-school program for children in need, Calgarians can count on Rotary,” Fitzowich said.

Each of the 12 Calgary Rotary Clubs is able to use the funds as directed by their membership to support charities of their choice.

During these uncertain times, much of the fundraising efforts for many organizations have been curtailed and the CRCF funds were very important to Rotary clubs so they could continue their good works.

Jim Fitzowich reported that through the ongoing contributions of Rotarians and the careful management of the funds on behalf of participating clubs, the Foundation funds are in good order and performing well despite the economic uncertainty in world markets. A similar amount is expected to be awarded to Calgary Rotary Clubs next year.
