The York Foundation assists District 6970 clubs to be able to accept tax deductible contributions and to provide the necessary tax receipt.
The York Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation originally set up by PDG E.T. York of the Rotary Club of Gainesville. The Foundation was later transferred to the District for administration and oversight.
The District administers the corporation and issues receipts to contributors in compliance with the IRS so that clubs do not have to be concerned with the expense of setting up a 501(c)(3 corporation of their own.
Each club in the district has an account within the York Foundation.
