Foundation Giving

Foundation Advocates and Club Foundation Chairs have been working with their clubs to submit donations to The Rotary Foundation by June 30 count in.  It is not that clubs are unaware of the June 30 cut off, but all clubs have competing priorities … wrapping up district grants and submitting documentation, conferring end of year recognitions, and providing a smooth segue into the 2015 -2016 year.  The Advocates and the Club Foundation Chairs keep the flag waving for The Rotary Foundation so our commitment to TRF remains in the mix.

For your information Jim Probsdorfer has shared the following reports which reflect EREY and Sustaining Member figures through June 14:  Banner Rpt – 11 June 15 (3) and  EREYEligibility 14 June 15  .  Many clubs are interested in their EREY and Sustaining member status so these reports may be helpful to them.  Please share.

Foundation Giving Goals

As of last week only about 50% of the clubs in District 7600 had entered their goals into Rotary Club Central.  District leadership, including the Area Governors, the Foundation Advocates and the Club Foundation Chairs are working with the Presidents-Elect to get their clubs’ goals entered.  Most clubs have set their Foundation Giving and other goals, but just have not taken that last step to enter them.  Many of the Foundation Advocates and their respective Area Governors have coordinated to assist clubs in this important and easy step.


Clubs have or are submitting their 2014 -2015 District Grant documentation via the Grants module at  Grant applications for the 2015 -2016 year are under consideration.  In June, July, and August look for a focus on grants in this blog and on our Facebook page ‘Rotary D7600 Foundation Committee’.  Your submissions and photographs would be a great way to profile your clubs’ efforts to ‘do good in the world’.
