Participants in our annual Kids Against Hunger project assemble food packages to be sent to Nicaragua.


The Winnetka-Northfield Rotary Charitable Foundation (a registered 501(c)(3) charity; EIN 36-3119576) is the vehicle our club uses to support good works on the North Shore, in the Chicagoland area and throughout the world.  Over the years, we have supported an orphanage in Vietnam, schools in Uganda, provided support to a prosthetic clinic in Bolivia, supported a "mechanical cow" project in Guatemala, provided highly nutritious "Kids Against Hunger" meals to starving children in Nicaragua and funded ShelterBoxes for victims of natural disasters.  Closer to home, we've provided new winter coats to children, supported veterans and their families suffering from PTSD and provided grants to many local organizations through our Community Grants program.
