Escondido Rotary Foundation

Coeur de Cuisine

The Escondido Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. Our objective is to use the funds we raise to benefit the chaitable purposes of the Escndido Rotary Club in and around Escondido, specifically including, but not limited to, programs for youth, senior citizens, veterans and physically or mentally disadvantaged members of our community. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact. Strong financial oversight, a stellar charity rating, and a unique funding model mean that we make the very most of your contribution. Give and become a part of Rotary’s life-changing work!
