The Wisconsin Rapids Rotary Clubs maintain their own foundations. Each foundation is charitable and contributions are solicited from all club members once each year. Bequests are also received by each foundation. Funds are used for charitable programs within the community, youth Exchange programs, and other projects that have been approved by the Foundation Board of Directors. The foundations place special emphasis on youth.
