Strongsville Rotary Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that provides a financial "foundation" and back-up for the Strongsville Rotary Club. The Foundation provides funds to local and international Rotary projects in addition to the Club's charitable activities. The Foundation is lead by seven Trustees, including the past three presidents of the Rotary Club of Strongsville, and four directors elected by members of the Rotary Club of Strongsville. In addition, in 2014/2015 the Foundation added a nine member Advisory Board of active Club members and past Presidents who have special skills and an interest in the growth of the Foundation.
