The December Foundation First Newsletter is here
 
 
For 100 years, The Rotary Foundation has been the charity of choice for Rotarians all over the globe. Why? Because your gifts to the Foundation change lives.
 
ROTARY RUSH CONTINUES UNTIL DECEMBER 31.
District 5970’s “Rotary Rush” is on through December. It provides an incentive for 200 Rotarians to become first-time or multiple Paul Harris Fellows (PHF).
Normally, a Rotarian must contribute $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation to become a first-time PHF and an additional $1,000 for every multiple PHF thereafter. Through Rotary Rush, Rotarians who contribute a minimum of $100 cash during November of December 2017 can benefit from a 1-for-1 points-to-dollars match. A group of generous Rotarians have contributed their points to this effort.
For example, you may have accumulated $500 in contributions to The Rotary Foundation. Then, if you add $250 in cash in November or December, our donors will match 250 points to your giving account, which allows you to receive your first or multiple PHF award.
This match is available to the first 200 Rotarians who submit their requests.  What are you waiting for? Make a difference today!

  • Rotary International is launching a campaign called, “Countdown to History.”  Goals were set and pledges were made, and we can’t do it without you, as Rotarians. We are asking for Rotarians across District 5970 to give a minimum of $40 to End Polio Now. This will get our District to the goal set by Rotary International.
