Lake Union Rotary Foundation (LURF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (Tax ID: 90-0847480) that was founded in 2012 with the goal of supporting the charitable projects of the Lake Union Rotary Club and qualify for matching grant funding from Rotary International. The current focus of the Lake Union Rotary Foundation is funding our international clean water for children projects in Ethiopia, local efforts to address family homelessness and job training & connections for at-risk youths in the maritime industry as well as maternal & child health.
Donations to the Lake Union Rotary Foundation are 100% tax deductible and will be utilized to fund our various projects. Since LURF is run by members of the Lake Union Rotary Club, there is zero overhead and all monies are spent directly on service projects locally and around the globe. In most cases we are able to double and triple each donation through the power of matching grants from Rotary International. Please consider donating today.
We are currently raising the seed funds for Tag Myanmar’s newest upcoming program “Drop of Milk” aimed at improving pregnancies and birth outcomes through a holistic community health model. The infant mortality rate in Myanmar is 38/1000 vs. the US 7/1000 and Israel 4/1000. Tag International Development has the unique opportunity of making a long lasting impact through the holistic Israeli-based Community Health developed model–“Tipat Halav” or “Drop of Milk” which involves equipment and training for associate midwives in rural areas. This approach was successful in Israel and has been requested by the rural villages in Myanmar. Our international partner on the ground is the local Yangon Rotary Club. We are in the process of putting together a global grant through Rotary International.
Each $1 you donate will turn into $3 through the power of Rotary matching grants.
