WE-GO established a separate 501(c)(3) foundation back in the 70's. All active members of the club are also members of the foundation. Our club raises funds annually placing the net proceeds into our Foundation. Our club operating funds are separate from our foundation funds. The WE-GO Foundation files it's own IRS return.
WE-GO supports the Fire Relief Fund established by Rotary District 5000. Read more...
Two of our past foundation funded projects are the Bahamas Relief and ROADD described below.
