Rotary Community Foundation
The Cameron Park Rotary Community Foundation is a Public Charity (IRC 501(c)(3)) that provides all members of the community, both Rotarians and non-Rotarians, the opportunity to donate funds for general community benefit projects or to designate those funds for a specific type of project. The Foundation, established in 1996, functions as the charitable arm of the Rotary Club of Cameron Park, under whose sponsorship it was formed. Over the past twelve years the Foundation has been active in supporting numerous community projects undertaken by the Rotary Club of Cameron Park, as well as providing scholarships to graduating high school students from the Western Slope of El Dorado County. The Foundation has its own Board of Directors who are all members of the sponsoring Rotary Club and who serve on a volunteer basis without any form of compensation. This allows the Foundation to utilize one hundred percent of its funds for its designated projects without any reduction for administration costs or other expenses.

Rotary Rasmussen Vocational Endowment Fund
The Rotary Club of Cameron Park through the Foundation has undertaken the major project of establishing a permanent Endowment Fund to assist young people in our community to develop career skills. The earnings of this Endowment Fund will be utilized to provide educational and vocational grants. Particular emphasis will be placed on Community College and Trade School opportunities for career development. The Foundation hopes to receive gifts and bequests from members of the community to assist in creating this Fund. A member of the community has generously offered to match, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, the first $100,000 raised by the Rotary Club and the Foundation. This is seen as an incredible opportunity for direct investment in the future of our community by helping local high school graduates become successful members of the local economy.
