The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world. And every year we designate November as Rotary Foundation month.
At our recent District Grant Training Seminar, we highlighted the value of The Rotary Foundation and how all Rotarians can participate in supporting the Foundation through the various giving programs. By supporting The Rotary Foundation, you have the power to live the words of our Foundation’s motto: Doing Good in the World. This year we ask each of you to support the Every Rotarian Every Year program, as through it, we can do so much more good than we could ever do alone.
Remember that your contribution supports the many local and internationally developed club projects. And because of your contributions, this year 44 clubs were awarded District Grants totaling $65,188. Additionally over the last 2 ½ years, 9 separate Global Grants were funded with District 6690 DDF of $67,000. Multiple other Global Grants are pending.
Annual Giving is the cornerstone of our Foundation’s funding efforts. When you give to the Foundation you make our world a better place. We ask every Rotarian to please consider making a gift to the Annual Fund. For example, a contribution of $100 equates to only about 28 cents a day, a truly small investment for such wonderful rewards. If you have already made your gift we thank you. If not, please make your gift as soon as possible. Gifts are tax deductible and we are grateful for a gift of any amount.
Please make your check payable to "The Rotary Foundation” and give it to your Club’s Rotary Foundation Chair or Club Secretary today, OR go to Rotary.org and make your contribution online.
As we reflect on our theme this year; Be a Gift to the World!, one continues to be inspired by all the good that our Rotary Foundation does in bringing positive change to so many. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and generosity.
Yours in Rotary,
Tara Craaybeek, DG
District Governor 2015-2016, District 6690

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time

Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
