All Rotary clubs are encouraged to become involved in international projects as part of the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self”. We raise funds from various Rotary Clubs around North East Ohio as well as numerous corporate and individuals, many of whom have experienced congenital heart disease within their own family. Almost every project we take on we have partners and seek Rotary International matching grants to support our missions. We try to leverage each dollar 4 to 1 through partners and grants. Each grant may have 10 or 12 partners including Rotary Clubs from developed and developing world, other Gift of Life Chapters and individuals. Donations range from a few hundred dollars to $15,000. We have been fortunate to have established a Legacy Account that allows us to act quickly to commit to a need even before we have solidified all our funding sources.
