Gundaker Foundation


The Gundaker Foundation, Inc.

This non‐profit corporation of District 7450, established in 1964, recognizes the lifelong accomplishments of Guy Gundaker, a charter member of the Rotary Club of Philadelphia and President of Rotary International during 1923‐1924.

A charitable arm of our District, the Gundaker Foundation provides matching grants for the projects of clubs within the District and funds selected district programs. The Gundaker Foundation is a valuable and unique asset, serving the Rotary Clubs in our District. We are one of the few Rotary Districts –worldwide—to have its own charitable foundation. Its purposes complement those of the Rotary Foundation. Whereas the Rotary Foundation primarily supports projects of an international scope, the Gundaker Foundation focuses mainly on supporting the local efforts of clubs in District 7450.

Since its inception, the Gundaker Foundation has raised and distributed over $2 million. Approximately 80% of all funds distributed by Gundaker remain within our District.



The Gundaker Foundation Meets the first Monday of the Month at the Desmond Hotel in Malvern, PA.  Dinner is at 6:00 p.m. and the meeting starts at 6:45 p.m.  Guests are welcome.
