Endowment Fund

Endowment Fund

Established many years ago (1987-1989) as a non-profit corporation to benefit the local community, the Endowment Fund attempts to assist worthwhile projects and efforts in Fresno and Madera County.

The Endowment Fund is primary supported by contributions from North Fresno Rotarians but our finances are independent from the North Fresno Rotary Board.  

We meet on a bi-monthly basis (3rd Wednesday of every odd-month).


To benefit our local community by assisting worthwhile capital projects and efforts in Fresno and Madera County.


The Rotary Club of North Fresno Endowment Fund is proud to have provided the following gifts and endowments in the Fresno community

  • $5,000 to Valley Teen Ranch Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment Facility building project
  • $1,000 Youth for Christ for a landscaping project at their Campus Life Center for youths of our community.
