January Foundation Greeting from Michelle Bell
Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe the beginning of 2018 has arrived. But don’t fret, as we are only halfway through the Rotary year and there’s still plenty of time to make your donation or to plan a Global Grant project! If you have something in the works, please let the Foundation Committee know so we can help promote your project.
 
Dates for Grant Management Seminars will be published in the February issue of Foundation First. 
 
Join a District 5970 International Grant in Nicaragua!  Details in the January Newsletter. 
 
Read Kristina McLaughlin's Story of her last 18 months... She is a native of Marion and the recipient of a Rotary Global Grant Scholarship from District 5970. She was a Rotary Scholar at Trinity College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland pursuing a Masters Degree.  Read more in the January Newsletter. 
 
 
  • Rotary International is launching a campaign called, “Countdown to History.”  Goals were set and pledges were made, and we can’t do it without you, as Rotarians. We are asking for Rotarians across District 5970 to give a minimum of $40 to End Polio Now. This will get our District to the goal set by Rotary International.
A New Polio Banner available for Club Events! See it here.  Contact foundationchair@district5970.com to borrow it!
