Changing lives thanks to you.

When a homeless student at Winter Park High School needs food for his family, Willie’s Food Pantry is there to serve.

When Killarney Elementary School needed a food pantry to serve their students, WP Rotary Foundation funds and WP Rotary volunteers stock the shelves.

When a family’s life is turned upside down by a child diagnosed with cancer, it is BASE Camp Children‘s Cancer Foundation that provides the parents and siblings with a respite from being caregivers.

These organizations have one thing in common: They are or have been a grant recipient of the Rotary Club of Winter Park Charitable Foundation, which is made possible by support by people like you.

In fact, thousands of people’s lives in Winter Park and Central Florida are changed every day thanks to individuals, foundations and local businesses participating in the Rotary Club of Winter Park Chili for Charity. This event raises at least three-quarters of the funds which Rotary uses to make grant awards each year. Over the eight years since Chili for Charity started, the Rotary Club of Winter Park has distributed over $400,000 to local non-profit organizations.

Every ticket you purchase, every sponsorship you invest in and every charitable gift you contribute is changing lives for people in Winter Park.
