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 with our NG partner, local efforts to address family homelessness and job training & connections for at-risk youths in the maritime industry as well as a maternal & child health project in Myanmar  “A Drop of Milk” with our NGO partner TAG

Donations to the Lake Union Rotary Foundation are 100% tax deductible and will be utilized to fund our current 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.
