The April, 2021 Foundation First Newsletter is here      
        Don Meyer, District 5970 Foundation Chair
Dear Rotarians,
 
By now, every Rotarian in our District should know this fact:
 
       A portion of the dollars you give to The Rotary Foundation comes back to our District to be used by
       your club for grant projects in your community. 
 
Because this is so important to the core of what we do in Rotary, this newsletter will focus on our District giving.  We had our first Grant Management Seminar last Saturday to train club members in applying for district grants.  We encourage your club to apply for a grant, for the reason listed above.  Where else can you give to a charity’s annual fund, and get a return on that gift?  Only The Rotary Foundation. 
 
Read more in the Foundation First Newsletter here:
  • There is one more opportunity for Grant Management Training during the District Conference (virtual and free!)
  • Final results are in for the Rotary Rush
  • How are you coming on meeting your Foundation Giving goals
  • Update from ShelterBox
  • Polio Eradication continues to be a top priority for the Rotary Foundation
Yours in Rotary,
Don Meyer
District 5970 Foundation Chair
 
Rotary International is launching a campaign called, “Countdown to History.”  Goals were set and pledges were made, the 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 is available for Club Events! See it here.  Contact foundationchair@district5970.com to borrow it!
