The Sonora Sunrise Rotary Club wanted to create a club foundation to solicit donations that could be used for the benefit of the County of Tuolumne. In addition, the Sonora Sunrise Rotary Club wanted to create an Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation which would allow the club more flexibility in fund raising and applying for grants to support the club’s projects. The Sonora Sunrise Rotary Club Foundation is a complement to The Rotary Foundation and does not directly compete with The Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Foundation focuses on international projects while the Sonora Sunrise Rotary Club Foundation focuses on projects within the County of Tuolumne.
The Sonora Sunrise Rotary Club Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization and an affiliate of the Sonora Sunrise Rotary Club of Sonora, California that was created on February 2, 2004. It is dedicated to supporting programs and initiatives that serve the community and to advancing the ideals of the Sonora Sunrise Rotary Club and Rotary International. It supports causes which enhance educational opportunities, improve quality of life, improve access to health care, address social problems, advance charitable giving, and/or provide emergency relief. The foundation exists primarily for the benefit of the residents of Tuolumne County, but may also support regional, state and international programs.
