Giving Back...

For the past 28 years, the people of Thunder Bay and the region, like you, have supported us and by doing so have allowed us to give back to the community in a big way - over $4 million to local and district charities, youth organizations, educational events and community activities and infrastructure


It is thanks to people, such as you, that when disaster struck this community and region in the form of massive flooding and subsequent devastation in 2012, Fort William Rotary was able to step up to the plate with a significant donation of $50,000 to help the people affected.


This year we are continuing our $500,000 commitment to Exception Cancer Care campaign at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation. We have made this commitment because we are confident that the good people of Thunder Bay and region will support us all the way, as they have for the past 28 years.
