Major Donor Recognitions at Foundation Dinner. Achieving the status of Major Donor in contributions to The Rotary Foundation is a big accomplishment.
Achieving Major Donor Level 1 means a person has contributed $10,000 cumulatively to the Foundation.

To achieve Level 2, an individual needs to have contributed $25,000 or more.

The following individuals were recognized at the Foundation Dinner on November 4 at the District Conference for achieving this recognition this past year:

Nord Swanstrom - Pecatonica - Major Donor Level 1
Scott and Adriane Shore - Putnam County - Major Donor Level 2
Elise Cadigan - Rockford - Major Donor Level 2
Dr. Kris and Patti Tumilowicz - Loves Park - Major Donor Level 2 

The following individuals also achieved this distinction but were not able to attend the Foundation Dinner:

Bob Presman - Rockford - Major Donor Level 1
Riley Oncken - Sycamore - Major Donor Level 1
John Countryman - Kishwaukee Sunrise - Major Donor Level 1

In addition, one individual achieved Bequest Society Level 2. To join the Bequest Society, an individual needs to have made The Rotary Foundation part of their estate planning at $10,000 or more.
To reach Level 2, the amount must be at least $25,000. Jim MacMurdo of Kishwaukee Sunrise achieved this distinction.

We thank each of these individuals for their ongoing commitment to the work of The Rotary Foundation.
They are each truly an inspiration.
