Foundation Minute

Submitted by Corliss Klaassen, Zone 28 & 29 Foundation 

 

Last April in response to emergency relief, The Rotary Foundation established a new support fund to receive contributions for disasters that strike around the world. Entitled the Rotary Disaster Response Fund, staff in Programs and Grants are now able to reach out to the affected areas and their districts to assess the need and desire for funding.  Upon a qualified response - much like a district grant - the affected district will be awarded funding in increments of up to $25,000, consulting the TRF chair as needed.  Only districts in the affected country may request a grant.  

 

To date four such grants have been issued and the fund is now depleted.  The Foundation encourages donations to the fund so that when disasters occur, Rotary will be able to help.  

(The fund will accept DDF contributions and those in cash will be credited towards a club’s Annual Giving Goal and per capita giving calculations.  However the donations will NOT apply to SHARE or the DDF calculation. )  Thank you for your help.  To donate go to rotary.org/donate.  Thank you.  

 

Peace on Earth Good Will To Men'
Fargo Rotary showers blessings on the Legacy Children's Foundation

For the past three years, the Fargo Rotary has demonstrated and provided countless acts and gifts of encouragement to students in the Legacy Children's Foundation. Together, students and adults have partnered to deliver groceries to hungry children, rebuilt bikes, tied blankets for the homeless and refurbished property on the LCF site. Waiting on Legacy students at the annual LCF Academic Awards Dinner gives a powerful message of affirmation and appreciation to young people.  "Showing kids the way they should go" is not just provided in a check, but in the presence of adults who show up to interact, converse and share time together in meaningful ways with teens who often feel unimportant.
The Fargo Rotary recently presented to Puja Chhetri, President of LCF a check for $1000. Gifts of $100 or more by the end of the year are matched 2:1 by a lead gift of $25,000. Teamwork and partnerships between intergenerational agencies who actively work to make Fargo a healthy, welcoming community for everyone is a true reflection of "Peace on Earth: Good Will To Men".
