The Rotary Foundation (TRF) and How It Changes Lives

 

The Rotary Foundation is the charitable arm of Rotary International and is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation.  Through Foundation grants, Rotarians are able to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

Our Club’s Goals to Support TRF:

Each year our club sets monetary goals that support The Rotary Foundation (TRF) in several ways.  With End Polio Now night at the Rangers this past August, the Morton Steakhouse funding event and additional member contributions, members from this club have exceeded our goal of $3000 for Polio Plus for 2012-2013.  Congratulations to President Sam on his leadership to reach our goal and the goal of eradicating polio!

Now it’s time to turn our focus to Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY).  Our goal this year is for each member to give a gift to The Rotary Foundation (TRF) so that we as a club achieve 100% giving.

EREY funds support Foundation programs such as Group Study Exchange, Ambassadorial Scholarships, District Simplified Grants and Matching Grants like our Literacy Project which was recently funded. 

In addition to 100% of members giving, the goal also suggests that each member make that gift at least $100 to EREY.  To encourage that, we now have the ability to have a monthly gift taken automatically out of our bank accounts using the safe and secure ACH just as many members do for their dues.  If each of us agreed to give just $9.00 each month to EREY using this method, the $100 per member would be reached easily.  If you’re interested in beginning this automatic deduction speak with our Treasurer Kim Crawford who can not only answer questions regarding ACH but can also guide you to have that process begin.

Working together as a club alongside Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation we can collectively achieve great, positive and peaceful changes in our world!
