Although this is an old You Tube video (2014), I thought it would be of interest to our members.

The Rotary Club of St. Marys has sent contributions totalling $7,555 through
our affiliation to Rotary District 5370 Charitable Fund for Fort McMurray. This
amount is a combination of some private donations and contributions from the
Rotary Club of St. Marys. We wish to thank all who made donations.
CRA approved tax receipts will be issued later in the year for all contributions
over $25 to the Rotary District 5370 Charitable Fund for Fort McMurray.

Representing a combination of member donations along with proceeds from the 2016 Rural Urban event, the Rotary Club of St. Marys presented a cheque for $5,800 to the St. Marys Memorial Hospital Foundation 'Someone I Know' Campaign. Our club supports worthwhile community projects and our hospital is important to all citizens of our area. We wish the foundation success in reaching their goal.

A sincere thank you to the many Rotary clubs, organizations and individuals who have contributed to our district foundation’s Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund.   Through your generosity we have received over $725,000 to date.


It will be some time before the funds will be disbursed.  As we have previously noted, this fund is meant for the long term rebuilding needs in the community.  In order to provide advice on those needs, the Rotary District 5370 Charitable Foundation is establishing an allocation advisory committee.  The committee will consist of two representatives from each of the two Fort McMurray Rotary clubs as well as two representatives from Wood Buffalo Regional Municipality (which includes Fort McMurray).  It will be chaired by DGE Frank Reitz, who is also a Fort McMurray resident.


The terms of reference for the allocation committee contain the following criteria:

Suggested Criteria for Inclusion in Disbursement Guidelines

1. Capital needs should be given priority over operating needs.

2. The degree that the disbursement meets immediate community needs or long term

community needs should be considered.

3. The project being funded needs to be defined and specific.

4. Priority should be given to projects that would rebuild or restore property loss due to

direct damage from the fire or would assist an indirect loss attributed to the fire.

5. The project must be in the geographic area affected by the fire.

6. Sustainabilty of the project is important.

7. Priority should be given to projects for children, youth and seniors.


We will be posting updates on this site regarding disbursement of funds, once that process has started.  In the meantime, additional donations are needed and welcome.

Donations may be from individuals or corporations. 


Rotary clubs may wish to facilitate this process by collecting donations, and then forwarding either the individual cheques or a cheque drawn on the club’s account for the total amount, along with a list of the donors and their addresses and postal codes.


Please make cheques payable to:  "Rotary District 5370 Charitable Foundation" and forward to: 


Rotary District 5370 Charitable Foundation

16030 – 104 Ave.. NW

Please annotate cheques “Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund”


If you wish to make a donation using a charge card, you may do so using ATB Cares.  ATB matches donations with an additional 15%.  Here’s the link:




All donations made through ATB cares flow through to the Rotary District 5370 Charitable Foundation's Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund. Many thanks!
