About the Dryden Rotary Charity Foundation

The Dryden Rotary Charity Foundation (DRCF) was set up to benefit the residents of Dryden and other communities in the area.
In conjunction with the Rotary Club of Dryden, and with the assistance of the Rotary Club of Sioux Lookout, the DRCF fundraises through a variety of activities and the DRCF’s Board of Directors decides how these funds are redistributed.
The majority of DRCF funds are raised from the proceeds of CKDR Rotary Radio Bingo and the monies are distributed as grants to registered charitable organizations or non-profit organizations that primarily benefit the citizens of Dryden and the surrounding communities.
