Intentional Granting Makes International Impact

Established in 2009 at NCCF, the Wilmington East Rotary Club endowment fund offers a meaningful way for members to live out the mission of Rotary International. Each year, members select up to 12 grant recipients based on the values of Rotary.

Through its endowed fund, Wilmington East Rotary has been able to annually support Homes of Hope India, which aids orphaned girls in India with housing and education. Since 2011, the club has contributed nearly $17,000 to the organization. Locally, the club supports NourishNC, whose backpack program feeds more than 1,300 New Hanover County children each weekend. 

The club has used its endowment at NCCF to distribute $140,000 to various nonprofits since 2009, including $12,000 in 2022.
