This year’s Rotary District 5240 Governor, Dana Moldovan, comes from Romania, and has been in communication with Rotarians there who have daily been assisting refugees crossing the border from Ukraine. Romania is not a rich country and they are in need of funds to feed and support these refugees. Consequently, our Rotary District is collecting contributions to transfer to the Rotary District in Romania.
We want to give our family and friends who are interested in contributing funds to this cause the same opportunity to do so through our club's 501(c)3 charitable foundation. Donations through it are tax-deductible.
If you wish to donate to help Ukraine, please either use the Donate button on our website ( or write a check to "The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise Charitable Foundation," marking Ukraine in the memo section, and mail it to:
