In response to the catastrophic loss of homes, businesses, and livelihoods for many Oregonians, Rotary has established a District- wide Fire Relief Fund to help victims of the fires rebuild their lives.  Oregon communities that have been severely devastated, if not eliminated, in the wake of these unprecedented fires will need help in both the near and long term.  Rotary’s 501(c)3 foundation is ready to accept tax deductible donations to provide grants to partner organizations and individuals in need.  Additionally, the power of the international Rotary Foundation to help leverage the funds raised through public donations will be of great benefit to Rotary’s ability to substantially assist Oregonians into the future.

The expertise of the 3200-member strong Rotary organization in District 5110 is well suited to help collaborate in the development and coordination of a long-term rebuilding strategy for our communities. A statewide Fire Rehabilitation Task Force made up of Rotary and partner organizations who are experts in such fields as site restoration, utility infrastructure, community planning, home building, engineering and banking has been formed.

“For the painful and challenging times ahead, Rotary is requesting help from the public and corporations to help raise funds for those in need in our local communities. The focus is on raising and leveraging funds for future distribution via District-wide Disaster Grants that will help rebuild the fire devastated areas,” shares District Governor Cindi O’Neil of Bend, Oregon.
