2017 - 2018 Goals

    One of our goals this year (and every year) should be 100% member participation in giving to The Rotary Foundation.  The Rotary Foundation is no fly-by-night operation that takes your money and squanders it.  91% of the funds are spent directly on programs.  This is the first year of The Rotary Foundation's second century.  The Foundation has received the highest recognition year after year from Charity Navigator.  The Association of Fundraising Professionals named it the Worlds Outstanding Foundation for 2016 and again for 2017.  CNBC named The Rotary Foundation one of the "Top 10 Charities Changing the World". Giving to The Rotary Foundation is an investment.  We invest because we know the money will be used wisely.  We invest because we see the dividends in the good works that accrue from our combined donations.
    The Rotary Foundation has six areas of focus -
  • Promoting Peace
  • Providing Clean Water
  • Saving Mothers & Children
  • Supporting Education
  • Growing Local Economies
  • Fighting Diseases (including Polio).
    Whatever your focus is ----Invest by Giving!
