I am very excited to announce to you a new initiative that I, along with President-elect Kara Bennett, KCRC Foundation President Phil Kinney, and our respective boards, have been working towards for several months – the Club 13 Venture Fund!

The Venture Fund consists of money provided by the Kansas City Rotary Club Foundation, to be used on community projects that benefit the youth and community of Kansas City. Over the next three years, the Foundation has committed up to $50,000/year for these projects.

“The foundation feels that supporting the Venture Fund idea is a very positive use of the Foundation's assets,” said Phil Kinney. “The financial support for the Venture Fund will not reduce the amount of money that is sent to the camp each year.”

As Kara Bennett said at our May 3 luncheon – the Who, What, When, Where, Why and How of this fund is focused around YOU, the club members. It will be up to YOU to suggest projects, and champion their success. The goal is to make a difference by showing that we, Club 13, are People of Action in Downtown Kansas City, and to be relevant to our community.

“This money has the potential to spark interest in our club and to fund many worthwhile projects to support the needs of children in our downtown area,” said Kara.

We won’t be able to do this without you, our members. Kara is forming a new committee to put these ideas in action. If you would like to participate, please let us know. And, we need your ideas for projects – ideally “one and done” events where we can volunteer or lend a hand for one day. But the sky’s the limit and all ideas are welcome.

I hope you are excited as the Club and Foundation’s leadership is for this amazing opportunity! We not only have the opportunity to “Make a Difference” – but to “Be the Inspiration” to our community!

Please reach out to David, Kara or Mandy if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

As we approach our 100 year anniversary in 2024 and continue to serve special needs children of the Kansas City metro area, we are focusing on what makes the Rotary Youth Camp a truly exceptional place.  We are the only camp in the metro Kansas City area that serves children with a broad range of special needs.  Organizations that use our camp include the Boy Scouts, Campfire USA, ARC of Clay and Platte Counties, Midwest Brachial Plexus Network, Joshua Center and others.  We provide children an outdoor camping experience at no charge who may otherwise not have that opportunity.  These children are able to participate in a variety of activities including swimming, campfires, basketball, archery, crafts and other outdoor pursuits.
