As we dive into the new Rotary year, here are suggestions to help you perform your volunteer roles as Foundation Advocates and Club Foundation Chairs.

What to do now

Foundation Advocates … reach out to your Club Foundation Chairs and your partner Area Governors … discuss how you are going to communicate and work together in assisting your clubs

encourage Club Foundation Chairs

     to register for a ‘My Rotary’ account on http://www.rotary.org

      to visit the Advocates page on http://www.rotary7600.org from time to time

Check on your areas and clubs to insure that each club has entered 2015 -2016 Foundation Giving Goals including Polio Plus funds.  14 clubs have not entered any giving goals on Rotary Club Central and an additional 9 have not entered Polio Plus goals. Here is a spreadsheet date July 3, 2015 to check which of your areas and clubs need assistance  2015-16 TRF Club Goals 1.1 (4)

Attend the End Polio Now baseball games in your area by contacting your club ticket master and reserving tickets … July 9 in Richmond and July 20 in Norfolk

Register now for the Foundation workshop on August 1 in Williamsburg by logging on to dacdb.com, selecting Calendar, and scrolling down to the event

And a special request to Club Foundation Chairs …

Coordinate with your President so that a few minutes of each meeting can be devoted in some way to The Rotary Foundation

Try to be nice to the Foundation Advocates … they are a misunderstood, but caring lot
