On behalf of the CREF Board and Members of the CREF Permanent Fund Development Committee, thank you very much to those of you who have responded to our request that you make your Rotary Endowment Foundation a part of your annual giving.
The request for 2019-20 in your Annual Commitment statement indicates a $200 minimal commitment is “optional.” In truth, all our giving to Cupertino Rotary is optional except your annual dues. The facts uncover the generosity of our club members in so many ways.
You know a strong club is a sustainable club-and we certainly have been building such a club in the projects we do and the talent we bring to our many and varied services. Your financial support is personal. We understand that. It is vital as well. Continue to consider what you are able to do.
Cupertino Rotary, TRF and CREF Matter. Thank you for whatever you can do.
