Point West Rotary Foundation
In 1998, the club created a Foundation to help those in need in our community, as an enduring legacy to past, present, and future Point West Rotarians and the community we serve. The Point West Rotary Club Foundation is the fiscal agent for the California Brewers Festival. Learn about our foundation here.
Even though we are not raising funds through our traditional beer festival, we are still committed to supporting our non-profit charity partners in any way we can. We have other fund raising methods in mind, so be sure to check out our Facebook page for updates!
Runnin’ for Rhett
For 2020 we continue to partner with Runnin’ for Rhett as our primary charity partner. Runnin’ for Rhett raises funds for their Youth Fitness Program which is designed to combat childhood obesity in at-risk youth by educating young people and their families on fitness and nutrition. The program culminates a 5K race in the spring and the fall. Runnin’ for Rhett provides this program at NO CHARGE to more than 70 schools in the Sacramento region each spring and fall. Learn more here.
For 2020 we also continue to partner with WEAVE, Inc. WEAVE is the primary provider of crisis intervention services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Sacramento County. Through a multidisciplinary effort WEAVE also provides 24/7 response, outreach and services for victims of sex trafficking. WEAVE’s vision is a community free of violence and abuse. Learn more here.
