Lake Union Rotary Foundation

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 our third Clean Water, Hygiene and Sanitation grant project to serve 18,000 elementary school children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  To view previous project successes, please go to our NGO partner site Splash
