The West Africa Project Fair (WAPF) was Rotary’s first humanitarian project fair in Africa. It was created by Rotarians from 15 West African nations to facilitate partnerships and projects that will make a significant contribution to the needs of this continent.
The Los Altos Rotary Endowment Fund (LAREF) has established program to double your dollars when you contribute to a charity. Simply make one or more gifts between July 1, 2015, and March 31, 2016, and LAREF will match your gift up to $500 per member!
How does it work, you ask? Just make out a check for at least $100 to your favorite charity and send it, together with the match request application, (include link) to Barbara Small, the Matching Grants Chair. LAREF will cut a check for the match and send both to your charity.
LARC has just gone "live" with Clubrunner 3.0. You'll see a few differences starting immediately, and more things changing in the coming months.
The menu system has been updated to make it easier for club members and visitors to find information. For example, new areas have been dedicated to LARC's activities in the local and global communities. A new "About Us" section has been added to collect information about our club, membership and Rotary International into one spot. Of course, Avenues of Service and Major Committees still have their place.
A new area titled "Member Giving" has been created. This is not so much to drag dollars from your pockets, as to explain the interrelationships between Rotary International, TRF and LAREF. It alsoo describes the different levels of recognition provided by each organization
You'll still find some links that don't contain any information, and others where the info is out of date. Please be patient while we get everything in place. We welcome your feedback and ideas--as well as content corrections and updates. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
