ROTARY CLUB OF RED DEER SEEKS A LEGACY 100 PROJECT FOR 2023

The Rotary Club of Red Deer, Red Deer’s longest active community service club, will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2023.

To celebrate this anniversary, the Rotary Club of Red Deer is prepared to invest a minimum of $1,000,000 in a Legacy capital project and is seeking a Red Deer area community capital project to fund ideally, the project should be substantially completed on or before our Club’s 100th anniversary in 2023.

Rotary International is a worldwide service organization with over 34,000 clubs and 1.2 million members who serve communities around the world. Rotary’s six areas of focus are:

1. Peace and conflict prevention/resolution 2. Disease prevention and treatment
3. Water and sanitation
4. Maternal and child health

5. Basic education and literacy
6. Economic and community development

Rotary is a non-political and non-secretarian organization open to all people regardless of race, colour, creed, religion, gender or political preference.

The Rotary Club of Red Deer invites submissions from not for profit community organizations for this exciting opportunity marking Rotary’s 100th anniversary. Our goal is for the successful project to serve Red Deer and to embrace one or more of Rotary’s area of focus. For more detailed information on Rotary’s areas of focus please refer to https://my.rotary.org/en/document/rotarys-areas-focus.

In the past, the Rotary Club of Red Deer has been involved in many local area projects such as Rotary Park, Camp Alexo, Central Alberta Women’s Emergency Shelter, Red Deer Hospice, community playgrounds, scholarships and other smaller community initiatives. This signature project for the Rotary Club of Red Deer will be its premier project and appropriately reflect its commitment to the City and the surrounding area of Red Deer.

It is the intention of the Rotary Club of Red Deer to review submissions for potential legacy projects and assess them to determine suitability as our 100th anniversary project. The Rotary Club of Red Deer envisions a multi-phase evaluation process. The first phase should, at a minimum, provide conceptual detail of the project including:

1. Description of the project and its sustainability;
2. Timing of the project;
3. Estimated total capital cost of the project;
4. How the project will align itself with Rotary’s areas of focus and provide long term service to

the community;
5. How the project will lend itself to other community partnerships;

6. How Rotary would be recognized.

From the initial project submissions, the Rotary Club of Red Deer will determine a short list and conduct a second phase detailed assessment in the first quarter of 2018 with the intent of selecting a project as its Legacy 100 Project.

Project submissions should be submitted to later than Friday, January 26, 2018 and sent to:

Rotary Club of Red Deer
