The Harbourside Rotary Foundation is the Club's own Foundation, originally set up in 1985. The Harbourside Foundation may make contributions to organizations it considers to be well managed and whose mandates fit within the Harbourside Foundation's objectives and can provide grants for projects that address a community need in an area such as poverty, education, health and well-being. Within this, the emphasis has been on supporting youth-oriented projects. See also the "Our Foundation" Tab on the Club's home page banner
