Foundation

The Altrusa International Foundation was established in 1962 as the charitable arm of Altrusa International. It funds the development and implementation of effective community services and leadership programs around the world. In total, over three million dollars have been given in community service grants and educational scholarships through our international outreach, committed to improving economic well-being and quality of life.

91% of International Foundation income goes back to our communities.

In the past five years, we have:

  • Distributed over $350,000 to volunteers at Altrusa Clubs in support of their local community service projects
  • Granted $53,000 in support to children and their families affected by diseases and disabilities
  • Partnered with healthcare organizations and provided over $28,000 in grants to Ghana and Mali in West Africa
  • Distributed $34,000 to communities left devastated in the wake of natural disasters around the world
  • Granted $47,000 in educational scholarships and awards to high school students and their sponsoring Altrusa Clubs
