2021-22 Rotary Foundation Giving

This year we're again reaching out through this site to request your 2021-22 donation to
The Rotary Foundation Annual Fund

We're very motivated to complete our campaign by the end of December. If we achieve EREY (Every Rotarian Every Year - 100% member participation) our club has the chance of winning a signicant monetary prize to be used in our Global Grants! An even larger prize is possible in a second drawing based on the total amount our club gives! In both cases all donations must be made by 12/31/20.

Why We Give and How Much Is Right for Me?

Due to its amazing structure that includes 1.2 million volunteers operating in over 200 countries, TRF is able to direct invaluable help to where it is TRULY needed. The foundation has a 100 year track record of unifying nations through its pursuit of peace, universal education, maternal and child health, disease prevention, water and sanitation provision, economic and community development, and environmental protection.

The Association of Fundraising Professionals named TRF “the most outstanding foundation in the world”. It received a 4-star, 97% rating from Charity Navigator and, astonishingly for a foundation of its size and scope, over 90% of all monies go directly to its recipients.

So your money couldn’t be in better hands, AND, unbelievably, TRF is set up such that approx. 50% of our donations come right back to the club after three years!

No matter which of the above methods you use to give, your gift is tax deductible and it will be acknowleged by The Rotary Foundation

How much should I give?

Every Rotarian is expected to give each year but the amount is up to you.

$100+ makes you a Sustainer

$200+ is the all important Double Sustainer. We hope you can give at least this amount.

$500+ Super Sustainers make us all proud

$1000+ lands you in the exclusive Paul Harris Society. Last year there were 18 of us at this level!

Even $25 makes a difference. So, give what you can, and give generously if you can!

Look up your lifetime total and last year's gift amount!
