Gift of Life
Rotary District 7505 Gift of Life Foundation is dedicated to providing free, life-saving cardiac surgery to children in developing countries suffering from congenital heart defects; regardless of age, race, gender, creed or national origin, who, without our help, would certainly die.
Toms River Rotary makes an annual contribution to Gift of Life in support of their mission to help children around the world.
Several of our members have served on the the Gift of Life Board of Directors as well as as host families
