Rotary Plays Critical Role in Trailblazer's Success

Since its inception in 2004, Trailblazer Foundation has had a close relationship with the Rotary International community, receiving important initial and ongoing support from Clubs and Districts across the United States, and around the globe. We have received nineteen (19) grants from Clubs in the United States, thirteen (13) grants from clubs outside of the States, and two (2) international grants (see list below)


Additionally, Trailblazer's co-founders, Chris Coats and Scott Coats, have been members of the Rotary Club in Siem Reap City (Trailblazer's headquarters in Cambodia).


Finally, as co-founder and executive director, Chris Coats has spoken to numerous Rotary groups - at monthly meetings and annual conventions. Most recently, Chris was a keynote speaker at the ​annual meeting of District 5440, which covers the U.S. states of Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho and Nebraska. There were approximaetly 300 people in attendance, with representatives from nearly 50 Rotary Clubs across the four state district.

After the event, Chris received a nice thank you note from the District Governor, in which he said of Trailblazer's story: "The story of the evolution of the small project supported by Jackson Hole Rotary into the very effective program today was both immediately noted by the Rotarians, and very much a motivation to plan for bigger and better projects through their own clubs."


Our response: Thank you for the kind words, and the ongoing support. Trailblazer would not be the "very effective program" it is today without the support of a myriad of Rotary Clubs. Those clubs, and their financial support, are listed below.
