Serving our community...


Since 1996, the Vero Beach Rotary Charities Foundation has been supporting our community; it began with $12,500 in assets. Members contribute for their birthdays, anniversaries and years in Rotary. Today the Foundation assets are over $300,000 and grants have been awarded to over 50 local organizations totaling more than $320,000. We have minimal expenses because oversight of the funds is provided by our CPA treasurer and member financial advisors. 

Grants have benefited those in the community from our youth to our elderly, as well as environmental projects such as clean water. Take a look at our current financials to see what a difference we make in the community. 

Thank you to all our members and to those in the community who provide financial support to our 501(c)3 Foundation!
