Foundation Minute for the week of December 5th
As we enter our season of giving, reflect upon and celebrate all that Rotarians have accomplished within our communities and the world.  Your selfless contributions of time, talent and treasure are making a true difference in the lives of people around you and those on earth. 
 
Your continued support enables The Rotary Foundation to purse its mission of advancing world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty.  Because of the commitment of Rotarians like all of us, Rotary has made significant progress toward achieving a polio-free world, building peace, providing clean water, supporting maternal and child health, promoting education and growing local economies.  Together we are providing sustainable solutions to “do good in the world.” 
 
Your financial contribution is so important for the continuance of Rotary’s mission.  Please consider a gift this year – if you haven’t already – and perhaps one larger than last year’s in celebration of The Rotary Foundation’s 100th Year.  Your contribution is so important.
 
Thank you.

Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...

Arch Klumph’s hometown raises over $2 million through centennial celebration
Rotary members in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, celebrated 100 years of The Rotary Foundation on 23 October with a banquet and a concert by The Cleveland Orchestra that have so far raised more than $2.1 million for the Foundation's next century of good work. Arch Klumph, a Cleveland Rotarian, planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917, with his idea of having an endowment fund dedicated to "doing good in the world." Today's District 6630 leaders thought that a concert was a fitting way to honor Klumph and mark the centennial because of Klumph's love of music. Klumph performed in several...
