Establishment of the Foundation

President Larry Smith included the establishment of a non-profit charitable foundation in the annual club resolutions for the 2000-2001 year.  The club had been collecting funds from members for several years in preparation for the formal creation of the foundation.


BE IT RESOLVED THAT the members of the Rotary Club of China Lake will form a local club "Foundation" during the 2000-2001 year with the funds currently in our reserve account.  The Immediate Past President and the Secretary with the assistance of one of the Club's Lawyer members will prepare all required paperwork and "Foundation" charter and by-laws, as required, to apply to the State of California and IRS for a 501.c.3 non-profit status for the Foundation and that each member contribute a minimum of $36 per year.
