Celebrating The Rotary Foundation

Dear fellow Rotarians –

 It is amazing how fast the days go by, so I say to all, welcome to the 11th month of the year better known as November. This is Rotary International’s designated month for the Rotary   Foundation. Our Rotary Foundation transforms our contributed treasures into projects that change lives in our local and global communities. In recognition of how amazing and   impactful our Rotary Foundation is, it has received 11 consecutive 4-star ratings from Charity Navigator something that seems to be the most accomplished  by any reputable   charitable organization so far.

 With it being the charitable arm of Rotary International, we can tap into the global network of fellow Rotarians who join us in investing time, talents and treasures into our priorities as   Rotarians i.e. Peace and conflict prevention/resolution; Disease prevention and treatment; Water and sanitation; Maternal and child health; Basic education and literacy and   finally, Economic and community development.

 The Foundation grants we receive, based on our contributions to it, empowers us to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact. I am a firm believer that each human should strive daily to do better than they have done the day before so in the same vein, I implore each of us to contribute more than we did the last time to the Rotary Foundation, so we can increase the reach and impact of what we do. 

Thank you all for what you do in your local and global communities. God bless you all!
