Charitable Giving / Support

The Minnetonka Rotary Club Foundation is the sole beneficiary of the Minnetonka Rotary's fundraising activities. The Foundation governs the distribution of grant dollars to non-profit organizations that apply for funding, giving particular emphasis to programs that support the Club’s mission of “Building Responsible Youth”. That emphasis also supports scholarships for deserving students at Minnetonka and Hopkins High Schools, and the Hennepin County Home School.

The Foundation Board consists of five members of the Minnetonka Rotary who serve for a two year term and are dedicated to reviewing the requests we receive to make sure that the money is invested with maximum impact into deserving organizations.
