Memorial Donations

Memorial & Tribute Gifts

A gift to The Rotary Club of Hamilton for a loved one or friend is a meaningful way to honour or memorialize that person. Tribute gifts can be a perfect birthday, wedding, or holiday gift for the person who has everything.

When you make a tribute or memorial gift, The Rotary Club will send a letter to the recipient or the recipient’s family to let them know about your gift. The amount of your gift is not disclosed. We also will send an acknowledgment to you as the donor. You will receive a separate tax receipt for donation

There are two opportunities to do a memorial donation:

Sunshine Fund: The Rotary Sunshine Fund supports projects and initiatives of the Rotary Club of Hamilton benefiting over 10,000 children & youth each year. Focusing on education, recreation, nutrition and poverty reduction projects both locally and internationally. Donations to the Sunshine Fund can be made on-line at

Rotary Forever Fund:  The Rotary Forever Fund – a name that goes to the heart of the purpose behind it. This is an 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.

Memorial Donations for the Rotary Forever Fund should be made to the Hamilton Community Foundation – Rotary Forever Fund Directly.
