Foundation Logo

The Altrusa District Three Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit, philanthropic organization established in 1991 by District Three of Altrusa International to assist local Altrusa Clubs with their service projects.

Updated October 16, 2013

The District Three Foundation was established in 1991 to support Clubs in District Three Clubs with their Literacy and Vocational Service projects through two endowed funds supported by District Three Altrusans through a variety of fund-raising activities. Since that time, individuals and Clubs have added three additional endowed funds to support environmental projects, rehabilitative service projects and ASTRA Clubs projects by District Three Altrusa Clubs.

In 2007, the Foundation announced the first grants would be available for District Three Clubs to support their service projects. Past Governor Linda Robison established the Joey Robison Scholarship Fund for Non-Traditional Students in 2010 in memory of her son. The Foundation also manages funds that district clubs raise for their own service projects for Clubs without their own foundation.

In 2012, the Foundation changed its name to the Altrusa District Three Foundation and incorporated in the state of Florida.
