The Rotary Foundation

The original vision of Rotary was to create a better world and was started in 1917 with a $25.00 surplus. It is now the 89th largest foundation in the United States.
The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International programs address the international community’s needs.

Contributions from generous Rotarians and their families go directly to the Foundations education and humanitarian programs.

Goal is to have 1 billion dollars in the Foundation by the year 2025.

Club Foundation – Managed by the Club

Annually giving program of $100.00 in years you would reach Paul Harris recognition.

Paul Harris Society - $1000 a year giving
134 District Members who participate
It is as easy as setting up a monthly contribution of $83.34

Matching programs within the District – Funds that are giving by the clubs to the foundation after 3 years 50% is given to the district for matching projects and 50% to the world fund.

Permanent Fund – The BIG Bucks – Asset giving / Legacy Giving (Will or Bequest) / Making an Outright gift of $10,000 or more

You can personalize your legacy with a bequest of $25,000 or more, you may establish an endowed fund within the Permanent Fund.

By making a gift in your will to the Rotary Foundation’s endowment (Permanent Fund) you can promote a better world beyond your own life time.

Get Paul Harris forever for a gift of $50,000 or more from Wills/ Assets/ Plan Giving.

Don’s wife Linda told about her trip to El Salvador next week. She is attending a Rotary fair where 200 different groups will be presenting projects. She asked what type of projects might we be interested in. She would bring us back information on those types of projects.

RI President Tanaka’s Rotary moments in December and January

By Sakuji Tanaka, in English and Japanese

As I traveled in 2012 to Rotary clubs and projects, I saw the joy of being a Rotarian. I noticed that the deeper your involvement with Rotary, the more you can grow as a person. Furthermore, I believe that Rotary can mean something different to each Rotarian, and it’s a part of our journey to discover that meaning. My wish for 2013 is that Rotarians discover what this organization means to them, and then share it with others. These personal experiences are our Rotary moments. Here were some of my Rotary moments from the past few months.
