Join us as we celebrate Rotary fellowship and Indigenous culture.

Tickets are $100, a portion of which will receive a charitable receipt. Please go to:
 
Our partner for this evening, which will receive half the proceeds, is Keeping the Circle Strong Camp Programs, supported by the Indigenous Spirit Fund (Native Child and Family Services of Toronto). The camps allow young people, many of whom live in city apartments and basements, to have their first experiences connecting with nature. At the camps they learn the history of the land, culture and land-based survival skills, and participate in teamwork tasks that build confidence and self-esteem.
 
The other half of our proceeds will go to our Club’s philanthropic committees.
 
Be sure to join us as we gather to make a difference in the lives of Indigenous children and young people!

Dear Rotarian and Friends:
I’m writing to request your corporate sponsorship for The Rotary Club of Toronto fundraiser to be held from 5 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. on Thursday Sept. 15 at the St. James Cathedral Centre Event Venue.
 
Miinawaa – Eyiizh / And – Both is a Rotary-Indigenous fundraising event of community coming together. The event includes Indigenous entertainment and live and silent auctions. The beneficiaries will be the Rotary Club of Toronto Philanthropic Fund and Keeping the Circle Strong Camp Programs, supported by the Indigenous Spirit Fund (Native Child and Family Services of Toronto). http://www.indigenousspiritfund.org
The Rotary Philanthropic committees address economic, social and environmental challenges including: homelessness, hunger, social injustice, access to education and challenges facing those living in poverty. Funding priority is directed to the fields of health, education, youth and welfare, primarily in the Greater Toronto Area.
Native Child and Family Services of Toronto (NCFST) focuses on the well-being, caring and healing of children and families in the Toronto Indigenous community. The Keeping the Circle Strong Camp Programs of the Indigenous Spirit Fund run year-round and allow young people, many of whom are raised in city apartments and basements, to have their first experiences connecting with nature. At the camps they learn the history of the land; culture, including medicines and healing herbs; artwork; and land-based survival skills. They also participate in teamwork tasks that build confidence and self-esteem.
The Rotary Club of Toronto is committed to walking the path of reconciliation with the Indigenous peoples of Canada. Our goal is to work in partnership with Indigenous peoples, groups and organizations, learning about their history, culture and contributions to our society. We hope that you will join us on this journey by making a contribution to our event.
 
Please make your corporate sponsorship contribution, in the name of corporate sponsor, at: https://rotarytorontofund.kindful.com/?campaign=1196130 and it is important please to let me know that you have done so at jandras@researchcapital.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

FEATURED PROJECTS & INITIATIVES
Sweat Equity Weekend
 
What exactly is Camp Scugog? In simple terms, we head up for a weekend of hard work fixing up a camp (located near Port Perry) for disadvantaged families. What does this entail? Generally we’re painting cabins, fixing fences and other assorted projects. No special skills are required – though there are specific projects for those who have a skilled trade background.
Sherbourne Health Bus
 
For the past 23 years, The Rotary Club of Toronto Health Bus, a program of Sherbourne Health Centre, has served homeless people in Toronto. With up to 10,000 client visits annually, the Health Bus reduces barriers by bringing health care directly to people in our city who need it most.

Community Impact

 

“We are so grateful for the legacy of support from The Rotary Club of Toronto. The third generation Rotary Club of Toronto Health Bus allows us to expand our services and provides accessible and equitable health care directly to some of the most marginalized people in our city. This has a profound impact on the health and lives of many Torontonians.”

“The Rotary Club of Toronto Charitable Foundation has committed to donating $351,000 to the Toronto Ride Program (led by SPRINT Senior Care) over five years to replace the aging vehicles in our fleet. This generous donation will allow Toronto Ride to maintain its commitment to providing 189,000 safe, reliable rides to over 4,000 clients per year throughout Toronto, reducing isolation amongst seniors and adults with disabilities, enabling them to live independently.”

Stacy Landau
CEO, SPRINT Senior Care
“The Rotary Club of Toronto Charitable Foundation has donated $50,000 to the IWIP program to help us achieve the expansion we have envisioned so that we can reach even more women and improve their cultural, social and professional lives. Rotary’s funding will allow us to invest in virtual and distance learning technologies, bringing the program to any Toronto immigrant woman through virtual computer access. The expansion of IWIP will mean that we can reach more newcomer women who may be living in isolation than we have before. On average, 10 IWIP trainees connect with more than 2,500 residents in their respective neighbourhoods, through their community engagement practicums. We anticipate a 300% increase in trainees, which also translates to over 6,000 newcomer women participating in workshops and other activities led or organized by trainees.”
