June is a month of deadlines for all things Rotary Foundation

Many of our Rotary colleagues are enjoying the dazzling Rotary International Convention in Seoul, North Korea, but they have left the work of The Rotary Foundation in good hands.

100_0497This week I received an important email from Liz Lazar, our district’s shepherdess (aka Annual Giving Officer Zones 33 & 34) at The Rotary Foundation.  It was replete with useful information.  There have been changes in banner recognitions which she explains carefully, but word is going out on that separately and there will be more info to come.

Today we will focus on the deadlines for getting contributions into The Rotary Foundation so the contributions can be timely processed.  The remainder of this article is Liz’s recap of giving deadlines, addresses, and resources for information on some of the less common methods of giving.  Ken Hodge and I are available if you have any questions.

Thank You For All You Do, District 7600 Rotarians.

–Jim Probsdorfer, District Rotary Foundation Committee Chair
