Dictionary Project

3rd Graders in all Hayward schools receive a brand new Houghton Mifflin American Heritage Children's Dictionary. This beautifully illustrated book contains over 25,000 entries covering all of the vocabulary that young readers need today. The bright colorful pictures help to make learning new words fun and exciting. This dictionary was carefully selected because it provides geographical information, a guide to phonics and spelling and so much more.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Economically disadvantaged people

Child Spree is a community service project that has provided much needed clothing and backpacks to 100 disadvantaged elementary school aged children. The Hayward Rotary Club Foundation, a non-profit organization, is a key partner in raising funds and coordinating this annual event, which has been in place for 15 years.

Child Spree is a unique ‘hands on’ project. Children in our community, who are most in need, are selected by referral from a youth services agency to participate in a two-hour morning shopping spree. They are partnered with a Rotarian or an Interact high school student, and together they ‘shop’ at JC Penney, choosing brand new clothing of their choice. After shopping, the children receive a new backpack and school supplies to prepare them for the school year.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Hayward Rotary Club started the Club Foundation in 1990. The Club Foundation was created to establish a fund which would be used to better the lives of the people in the Hayward Area.

The median household income in Hayward has not kept pace with the median
incomes in Alameda County and the Bay Area. As of the 2010 census, the median income in Hayward is $60K, which is well below the Bay Area median of $75K. 14.5% of Hayward's population is below poverty level.

The Foundation has many projects that reach out to Hayward's underprivileged population.

Our fundraisers are the most important factor in making our work possible as they generate most of our spending income to enable our projects.

In May, the Hayward Rotary Club partners with Rowell Ranch Rodeo, and handles all the food concessions for the Rodeo Weekend. Our other major fundraiser is the Omelette Brunch which is really a whole community, gathering to eat in support of our charitable projects.

In recent years, we have successfully reached out to corporate sponsors for our events.

The members of Hayward Rotary Club are very generous when it comes to supporting club projects and give often to the Foundation to help with these projects.

We have a group of committed Rotarians who volunteer to meet the goals of the Hayward Rotary Foundation. The Foundation's Board of Directors is all voluntary, comprised of highly dedicated individuals who all have the focus of building a better Hayward. The members of the Hayward Rotary Club are the heart of the Foundation, giving of their time, energy, and resources to provide the wherewithal to fulfill the Foundation's funding priorities.

The Foundation has funded the building of parks for adults and small children to enjoy. It has improved sports fields for high schools and refurbished elementary school playfields. The foundation has paid for a medical and dental clinic for underserved and underinsured children and, since 2003, has provided dictionaries to thousands of third graders in the City of Hayward. For the past 15 years, 1500 students have gone back to school with new clothes of their choice, backpacks, and school supplies to start a new school year with confidence.

What the foundation would like to accomplish is to raise enough funds to finance all the ideas and projects that are waiting in the queue to be funded.
Besides the annual projects, there are always great ideas out there that would enhance the quality of life of so many deserving people in the community. All that is needed is more funding.
