We don't want to just write checks. We also want to invest sweat equity in our community projects. This is the true nature of the Rotary motto of Service Above Self.

Examples of RAW's Service Above Self in Fort Collins are:

  • Building raised beds for a vegetable garden at Teaching Tree Early Childhood Learning Center and providing playground maintenance.
  • Playground maintenance and other services at La Familia.
  • Little Libraries. We collect and distribute to all our libraries around Fort Collins books for children and youth.
  • Remediating Reading with Kindle. This experimental program is aimed at rapidly increasing reading skills.
  • The Ron Baker College Scholarship pays full tuition for single-parent students at Front Range Community College. We select deserving students with the help of Project Self-Sufficiency.
  • Grants for Vocational Education. We support high school shop classes in constructing "flat-pack" houses for completion and installation in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.

Support Orphans in Nepal!
RAW supports three orphanages in Nepal. Over the years we have supplied them with school clothes, school notebooks, computers, upgrades to their facilities (such as windows!), and during the Covid-19 pandemic, we paid for food that in Kathmandu was scarce and expensive.
