Making a Donation

Rotary Forever Fund

Our fund is known as the Rotary Forever Fund – a name that goes to the heart of the purpose behind it. This is our opportunity to leave a legacy to Rotary – and our community – by supporting a permanent fund that is housed at Hamilton Community Foundation. Grants and donations to Rotary causes will be made on an annual basis from the investment income of the Rotary Forever Fund, at the discretion of the Board of Directors.

You may wish to consider using the fund as a vehicle for individual cash donations, and many of you have and continue to do this in honour or memory of someone special to you. We have also created a special recognition opportunity for those who make a planned gift (a bequest through their will or insurance) to the Rotary Forever Fund; such donors will be known as members of “The Broadfoot Circle.” This name is in honour of our late club member, Rick Broadfoot.

The opportunity we’d like to share with all club members is to consider whether you would like to become a member of The Broadfoot Circle this year. It is a simple process involving the completion of a brief form (attached) signifying that you intend to make a bequest to the Rotary Club of Hamilton through its Rotary Forever Fund.

It is not necessary to have actually made the change to your will when you complete this form. Neither do you need to say what the size of the bequest is. We only need to know your intent.
