  The Las Vegas Rotary Foundation 
 

 

 

 

 

For more than 10 years now, the Las Vegas Rotary Foundation provides a qualified 501(c)(3) vehicle for ROTARY'S MANY GRANTS and CHARITABLE ACTIVITIES IN THE LAS VEGAS COMMUNITY.

Many Rotarians who support ROTARY INTERNATIONAL'S worldwide philanthropic activities, also want to contribute money THAT STAYS IN THE LOCAL LAS VEGAS COMMUNITY.

That's where the LAS VEGAS ROTARY FOUNDATION COMES IN.


HISTORY
The Las Vegas Rotary Foundation was chartered in 1998, on the advice of Las Vegas Rotary member and highly respected tax and estate lawyer, Bryan Lowe. Mr. Lowe drafted the Foundation's charter and continues to serve as its Registered Agent.

MISSION STATEMENT
The Las Vegas Rotary Foundation, Inc., is a nonprofit organization that raises and manages private funds for the benefit of the community in which it resides. These funds enhance the quality of life through the mission of education and community service.

The Foundation shall always maintain two funds to accomplish its objectives of community service:

1. The Annual Fund. which shall support the charitable activities undertaken by the Las Vegas Rotary Club Board of Directors and referred by it to the Foundation Trustees for funding within the revenues raised by Club fund-raising activities.

The Annual Fund shall also provide for the Club's responsibilities to Rotary International Foundation and national and international charitable drives.

The Annual Fund shall administer both restricted and unrestricted funds and may contribute to the administrative expenses shared with the club.

2. The Permanent Fund, which shall pursue the Foundation's original Mission Statement and Implementation to provide for the long term support of Las Vegas Rotary's community service by raising an endowment of One Million Dollars.

No Annual Fund activities shall be supported from the Permanent Fund, until One Million Dollars are accumulated and invested.

No part of the principal of the Permanent Fund shall be expended.

After achieving a One Million Dollar fund balance, earnings from the Permanent Fund may be used, in the sole discretion of the Trustees, to further the charitable projects of the Annual Fund; provided, however, that such transfers of earnings shall preserve the Fund with a balance no lower than One Million Dollars.

No Administrative costs, except those paid third parties in connection with investment activities of the Permanent or Endowment portion of the Foundation, shall be paid from the Permanent Fund. The objective shall be that administrative costs of the Permanent fund will be subsidized by the Club or Annual Fund.

STATEMENT FROM PAST PRESIDENT TOM THOMAS

The Las Vegas Rotary Foundation was legally created to provide not only a legal identity for funds and properties previously donated to the Las Vegas Rotary Club, but to seek the benefits of a tax-free organization for future club activities and opportunities. I had the opportunity to sit in an ex-officio capacity at the organizational meetings and, as I recall, there were several long-time Rotarians who provided guidance and direction. Bryan Lowe was the legal force to assist in the proper formation of the Foundation and offered a great deal of time and pro-bono expertise. "Uncle" Bert Purdue was a major force as was past UNLV President, Pat Goodall. Both of these members with expertise in financial management helped shape the investment policy of the Foundation. There were several other members who contributed greatly to the organization of the Foundation and provided legal and organizational expertise. From the outset, the goal was to create a million dollar Foundation to sustain the philanthropic efforts of the Las Vegas Rotary Club. It was a pleasure for me to participate and watch this great effort unfold.
