Four Way Test

FOUR WAY TEST

 Of the things we think, say or do:

1. Is it the TRUTH?

2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?

3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"

 

Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated
into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.

Jeremy Pilmore-Bedford: British Consul General

Jeremy Pilmore-Bedford took up his appointment in Atlanta as Her Majesty’s Consul General in August 2013. He leads a team which works throughout the Southeast to promote UK-US trade and investment, support British nationals, conduct public diplomacy on key issues, and build scientific co-operation. He also sits on the Marshall Scholarship selection committee.
 
Jeremy’s previous posting was in London where he was the Head of the UK Foreign Office’s Caribbean, Central America, and Mexico Department.  In this role he helped to re-invigorate UK relations with Latin America and the Caribbean, pushed for greater trade links, and supported joint efforts to combat drugs and crime within the region. Prior to this Jeremy worked in the Foreign Office’s policy planning staff, and before that worked on supporting democratic reform in Ukraine after the 2004 Orange Revolution.
 
Jeremy joined the UK’s diplomatic service in 1990 as a graduate entrant. He has served overseas in Qatar, Singapore, Russia, and Malaysia. 
 
Jeremy was born in Sevenoaks in Kent, England.  He graduated in politics, history, and economics from Brunel University in London.  During his time there he participated in a one-year exchange programme with the State University of New York and worked as an intern for a US Congressman.
 
Jeremy is accompanied on his posting by his wife Amanda, a counsellor, and his two teenage children, Olivia and Alasdair.

Foundation Corner

 

WHAT IS THE ROTARY FOUNDATION’S “WORLD FUND”? 
 
At the end of every contribution year, each Rotary district’s contributions to the Annual Programs Fund are divided into two funds:  50 percent is credited to the World Fund (WF) and 50 percent is credited to the District Designated Fund (DDF).  The World Fund is used by The Rotary Foundation to pay for the worldwide programs available to all Rotary districts, regardless of specific contributions. 
 
IT IS THIS FUNDING FORMULA WHICH TRULY MAKES THE ROTARY FOUNDATION AN INTEGRAL PART OF ROTARY INTERNATIONAL.
 
**************************************************

 

WHAT IS “EVERY ROTARIAN, EVERY YEAR” ALL ABOUT?

 

This initiative by the Board of Trustees of The Rotary Foundation:

 

Encourages EVERY ROTARIAN to participate in a Foundation program that truly makes a difference in the world each and EVERY YEAR, and

 

Encourages EVERY ROTARIAN to contribute to the Foundation’s Annual Fund at an amount in which they are able, EVERY YEAR. 

 

The Rotary Foundation even has banners for clubs where every member contributes some amount to the Foundation and the annual per capita is US$100 and a banner for clubs where every member contributes at least US$100 per year…..think about what you can do to help us meet our Annual Giving goal…which is the goal to make positive change in the world around us?

 

IF YOU ARE A PART OF THE “EVERY ROTARIAN, EVERY YEAR” INITIATIVE WE PERSONALLY THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE ROTARY FOUNDATION AND ITS WORK.
