We are in the final two months of our Rotary year.  This is a great time to make your donation to The Rotary Foundation if you haven’t done so yet this year.  It is so easy to do on-line by visiting and clicking on the Donate button.  It is very user-friendly and quick.  You need to have established a My Rotary account if you don’t have one and then you are good to go.  You can set up recurrent giving however you would like that to happen, e.g., monthly or bi-annually.  It is safe and secure.

You can also find the Rotary Contribution Form on My Rotary’s Annual Fund page that you can print out and mail with a check if you are not inclined to give on-line.  Rotary’s Support Center staff is always very helpful if you have questions or concerns.  Their number is 1-866-976-8279.

The work being done by clubs in our district is impressive.  It is inspiring to read the final reports coming in on District Grants.  We are also continuing to pursue a couple of Global Grants in addition to those we have contributed some of our District Designated Funds to.  All of this would not be possible without the contributions made to the Annual Fund.

Our top 3 per capita clubs at this point are:

Princeton in the lead at $223.30.

Ottawa Sunrise is in second place at $186.97.

Rockford East is in third place at $165.22.

Stay tuned for details soon on our baseball-themed competition for our next Rotary year to put a bit of fun in our Rotary giving.

Thank you for all you do to support The Rotary Foundation.  We are in this together.
