A Solid Foundation
 
If you’re reading this you are probably charitably inclined.  You’ve decided that you want to help others, and you’re looking for charities that would help with basic human needs, from food to water and health, especially for children.  You understand the importance of peace, community economic development and the role of literacy.
 
You might have looked at a series of charities that addresses each of those needs, and you saw there are many specialized charities eager to put your money to work.  So you turned to a reliable arbiter of charity integrity, such as Charity Navigator, and you’ve researched the 6 or 7 charities you found that provide good work in the areas you decide to support.
 
You quickly realize that many charities have excellent reputations, but don’t seem to put enough of your money to work.  They have substantial overhead, as they are not only in the business of doing “good”, they are also in the business of raising money in order to do that good work.  Raising money can cost up to half of a charity’s income.
 
What if there was an organization that held the highest rating from Charity Navigator, and gave almost all of the money donated directly to those in need?  And what if it held not only the highest rating, 4 stars out of 4 stars, but also a perfect score of 100?  And, in most years, 100% of the money raised is spent on the beneficiaries of the donation, because of a combination of volunteer implementation and a unique method of paying for the overhead?
 
We Rotarians know, of course, of such a charity.  It’s called The Rotary Foundation (TRF). 
 
Most Rotarians in District 7190 donate annually to TRF, and many sign up to donate as little as $10 per month.  They understand the global reach of The Rotary Foundation, they feel passionately about the six defined areas of charitable focus, and they like that almost 100% of the donation provides direct support.  And they trust that the Charity Navigator designation has been hard earned and will be steadfastly maintained.

Yours in Rotary Service,

RYLA is designed to grow leadership skills in students who have untapped leadership potential. Specifically, we are focusing on juniors in high school. Our program is not for the student who is already utilizing strong leadership skills or students who have no desire to develop such skills. 
 
District 7190 RYLA has been developed to help the committed student with untapped leadership potential. Through our program we will open up that potential and show the student the possibilities that are available to them. This has positive effects on many parts of the student’s life. They will gain self-confidence, add valuable skills that will serve them well into their future, and will teach another generation
about the ideals of Rotary.
