The Findlay Noon Rotary Club’s Forward Fund was established in 1991 to build over the years through donations and bequests. The objective was to build a permanent fund which could make a substantial and lasting contribution to the community.
The fund is also supported through outright gifts, matching funds, contributions through wills, life insurance gifts, shares of stock and memorials.
The Findlay Noon Rotary Club was founded in 1920.
