Oceans of Giving raises funds to support Tacoma Sunrise Rotary Foundation's community programs. For over 30 years, donations from businesses, community supporters and club members have helped Tacoma Sunrise Rotary improve our community and inspire our leaders of tomorrow.  
Your support will help fund a variety of our community activities, including these signature Tacoma Sunrise Rotary programs and events:
  • Lincoln High School Challenge Scholarship Program
Our scholarship program is geared to assist high-achieving but under-served Lincoln High School students throughout their higher education journey. We partner with the Palmer Scholars Foundation to provide four-year college scholarships, mentoring, pre-college readiness training and counseling, and social support for these deserving students.
  • Santa Breakfast
For over 25 years, the Tacoma Sunrise Rotary Club has partnered with Goodwill to put on a holiday celebration for 600+ members our community. Featuring everything from a great meal, gift bags, hats, mittens and books, to stuffed animals, live music and a picture with Santa, our annual Santa Breakfast is a holiday party for families in need of a little Christmas cheer!
  • Ocean Fest Youth Story Contest
The annual Ocean Fest Youth Story Contest encourages students to learn about the ocean and conservation. Student participants write poems, create original films, and use statistical analysis to tell the story of the ocean.  Tacoma area volunteers and community organizations collaborate with local schools to promote, judge and award prizes to student participants.
