The Pacific Grove Rotary Club Legacy Fund distributes funds raised and donated by Rotary Club members and friends to projects that improve health, support education, alleviate poverty and improve the quality of life in our local community and around the world.

The Legacy Fund began in 1992 when fifteen members of the Rotary Club of Pacific Grove agreed to establish a long-term source of financial support for projects and programs serving the city. Its scope has since been widened to include our regional community and selected international programs supported by the Club.

The Fund grew through fund-raising activities, donations, gifts, and major contributions from Legacy Fellows (members and others who have contributed at least $1,000). The assets are invested in a professionally managed portfolio of diversified mutual funds that is overseen by officers elected by the members.


Projects and organizations supported by the Club include:

•  Restoration of The Little House and Gazebo in Jewell Park

•  Renovation of the Performing Arts Center 

•  RotaCare (weekly free medical clinic)

•  Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging  Program (I-HELP)

•  Boy Scout Troop 90, Pacific Grove

•  Pacific Grove Library

•  Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History

•  Breaching Whales and Sea Otter sculptures in Berwick Park

•  Pacific Grove Schools, including renovation of the high school baseball field and annual distribution of dictionaries to all third grade students

Donations and Bequests

Bequests through a will or living trust can continue to support our projects into the future and is an excellent way to create a lasting memorial in the community.
