A new Rotary record for Foundation giving!
2012-13 contributions to the Annual Fund reached an all-time high, exceeding US$115 million for the first time ever! Achieving annual contributions of this magnitude is a reflection of the extraordinary work of Rotary leaders, like you, around the world. Thank you!
Please spread the word about how every Rotarian can make an impact in their communities and around the world, by supporting our Rotary Foundation every year. With your help, we can reach our visionary goal of US$120 million by 30 June 2014.
REMINDER: Set Your Annual Fund Goals Today
Setting goals strengthens Rotary and increases support for the Rotary Foundation. The online tool Rotary Club Central can help clubs set goals and track membership initiatives, service activities, and Foundation giving. It’s not too late for club officers to sign on to www.rotary.org and use Rotary Club Central to submit 2013-14 Foundation giving goals.
UPDATE: A new newsletter coming soon
Beginning in November 2013, the Every Rotarian, Every Year and Rotary Grants (Future Vision) newsletters will be merging. In an effort to consolidate some of the communications you receive from Rotary, and to reinforce the important connections between Foundation giving and grants the newsletter will combine Rotary Foundation giving and grant stories, updates, reminders and resources.
The Rotary Foundation Reference Guide offers comprehensive Foundation information, covering our new grant model, PolioPlus, alumni, Foundation funding, donor recognition opportunities, and more.
Doing Good in the World Videos are available to see how The Rotary Foundation is improving communities and supporting scholarships around the world. You can view many of these videos for free on vimeo.com or available for order at: shop.rotary.org.
The Every Rotarian, Every Year Brochure (# 957) and the new Paul Harris Society Brochure (# 099) help encourage all club members to contribute to the Foundation annually, and are available free of charge at shop.rotary.org.
