The Altrusa 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 that do not have their own foundation.
Foundation Awards Foundation awards are available to the District Three Clubs for their service projects. The areas are: ASTRA, Rehabilitative Services, Literacy, Environmental and Vocational Service.
