The JULY, 2019 Foundation First Newsletter is here      
        Don Meyer, District 5970 Foundation Chair
 

Dear Rotarians,

Whew!  We made it through another Rotary year, and it’s always a flurry (I’m hoping that word will help you cool off) during the month of June to make sure we make our club Foundation goals by June 30.  Thank you to all the Presidents, Presidents-Elect, Club Treasurers and Club Foundation Chairs for promoting and processing the Foundation giving in your club this past Rotary year.  It takes teamwork, and your efforts are greatly appreciated.  Thanks also to those on our District Foundation Team—John Wasta, Fundraising Committee Chair, and Amy Weber, PolioPlus Committee Chair—for their work promoting the Annual Fund and PolioPlus Fund across the District.  It will be a few weeks before the final totals are in as it takes the Foundation staff longer to record the large number of gifts they receive at year-end.
