Three ways to support our Rotary Foundation
 
Every November, we celebrate The Rotary Foundation. Your support and generous gifts to the Foundation make it possible for us to be people of action and engage in life-changing projects worldwide. Here are three ways you can help maximize the effectiveness of our year-end giving campaigns and increase the amount of good we can do:
  1. Encourage your members to make a gift to the Foundation on Giving Tuesday, which is 1 December. Share our video message
  2. Give the gift of Rotary this holiday season. Share our digital flyer with members and potential donors.
  3. Learn more about our new peer-to-peer fundraising tool, Raise for Rotary, where you can create fundraising pages that are easy to share with family and friends through social media and email.
 
 

Please take a moment to log into your Rotary ClubRunner account to make sure our contact information on you is current.  Please look especially at your mailing addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. With our Club meeting virtually until further notice this contact information is even more important. This may be the only way fellow club members can reach you.
 
BTW: If you don't know your user ID and password just drop an email to Rick Lee. Your personal information is NOT available to the general public on ClubRunner, only to other members of our own Club.
