Santa Clara Rotary Foundation
The Santa Clara Rotary Foundation (SCRF), is dedicated to serving the local and world community. The SCRF is composed of business and community leaders that encompass Rotary’s motto of "Service Above Self."
The Santa Clara Rotary Foundation supports the community with projects such as: Steps for Success, Christmas
for Kids, College Scholarships and the Enterprise Leadership Conference. In addition to making major financial contributions to the welfare of the city of Santa Clara, the volunteer efforts of both Rotarian members and others enable the SCRF to use 100% of our event proceeds toward service-based programs we sponsor each year.
