Here we are in March, the end of the third quarter of the
Rotary year. This is a very good time to assess where your club stands because
you still have time to make changes and take action! Take a moment today and
pull up your personal Foundation Giving – are you where you want to be? Are you
a Sustaining Member (giving $100 during the year)? Are you close to being a
Major Donor? (Minimum of $10,000 giving to date) Are you a Benefactor or Bequest
Society member yet? Now is the time to decide what you personally want to
achieve this year.
The Rotary Foundation is the engine that drives so many
Rotary projects around the world, both overseas and in our own back yard. That
District Grant that you used in your community is courtesy of Rotarians
supporting The Rotary Foundation. The children in India who got vaccinated is
courtesy of Rotarians like you. Rotarians Make A Difference – and they do it by
supporting our Foundation. It is always there waiting to serve you.
After looking at your personal giving, take a moment to look
at your club’s giving. Are you doing better than last year? Or not? You have
time to turn it around if you haven’t hit your goals yet! Do a fundraiser, ask
your members to contribute, mail that check in today. Little things that mean
everything to people around the world.
Supporting the Foundation isn’t just about giving money and
having people like me beg. Supporting the Foundation is about improving lives.
True, you may never meet the people you help, but does that really matter? What
matters is that you have made it possible for them to have clean water, food to
eat, a way for them to support themselves and medical care that might save
their life. Literally.
Don’t just give money to the Foundation. Make a Difference
by mailing a check. Save a life.
