Our Club's Activities
Our local Foundation, the Calgary Rotary Clubs Foundation (CRCF) made their annual distribution to our club in the amount of $1,761,096.64.  The Foundation now has over $50 million in it, of which over $40 million is our club’s portion. Steve Austin made the cheque presentation to our club President, Sid Mark at the June 20 meeting.
At the recommendation of the Major Donations Committee, the Board has agreed to support the proposals for donations for several organizations in 2017.  Each proposal describes a strong partnership initiating a new service approach or otherwise expanding services to enhance the capacity of the organizations to meet essential community needs, particularly for those who are more vulnerable. 
For more information, see the summary of the presentation held on May 16.
 
If you want to support this program, click the Donate Today button.  In the Comments field enter "CSF Fund:  Major Donations"
Tax receipts will be provided for donations over $20.
 
 

The Rotary Club of Calgary has been involved with the Calgary Rotary Challenger Park since its inception in the late 1990s.  The Rotary Club of Calgary has three members serving on the Board of Challenger Park (Brian Guichon and David Holden) and several others who have served as Board members and Park leaders.  These individuals are now recognized as Park Ambassadors (Lou MacEachern, Walter Haessel, and Don Ross).

Calgary Rotary Challenger Park is a barrier-free meeting and recreational facility that is accessible to all people regardless of their age or ability.  But it is more than that!  It is a model of community inclusiveness where persons with disabilities can play next to and with their able-bodied peers on a daily basis.
 
In September 2015 The Rotary Club of Calgary agreed to support the Calgary Rotary Challenger Park  “Centre For All Abilities” project by donating $100,000/year for five years commencing in the 2016/17 Rotary year.

The Rotary Club of Calgary has been making major donations to the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway for 5 years!

Grand Opening September 2, 2017

Thirteen Calgary Rotary clubs, the Rotary Club of Cochrane and Rotoract are sponsors along with Mattamy Homes, and have come together to fund the bulk of the project. 

 "The Greenway embodies Rotary's vision for a better future for Calgarians and the generations who follow.  We are very proud to put our name to this community project." Eva Friesen, 2013-2014 President of the Rotary Club of Calgary, said in a press release.

The  map of the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway includes information on access points and parking. There are six access points that give good starting points on the Greenway.  Click on the access point to get parking locations and directions on how to get there.  As the final areas of the Greenway are completed, more access points will be added. 

Please encourage your friends and family members to use the Greenway and enjoy the amazing amenities along the way.  Have a great time exploring our wonderful Rotary/Mattamy Greenway
