Welcome to the Centennial of The Rotary Foundation …

It is a great honor that the beginning year of my tenure as the District Rotary Foundation Committee Chair is the Centennial Year of The Rotary Foundation.  This year brings great optimism in that we will celebrate the Centennial throughout the district from now until July 1, 2017.  We trust that the heightened awareness of this special year will spur giving and the completion of remarkable district and global grants.  This will happen only with your help, whatever your club or district role.  The Rotary Foundation is the personal connection for each and every Rotarian to the greater good we are accomplishing throughout the world.

We are eradicating Polio, building wells and sanitation systems, linking isolated communities with state of the art foot bridges, bringing literacy  and educational programs, and improving access to health and wellness facilities for people across the world. This does not happen unless a Rotarian reaches into his or her ‘pocket’, makes a contribution, and contributes time to design and execute impactful, sustainable projects. We, as Rotarians, are The Rotary Foundation.

So, my challenge to all of the clubs and members  is promote the celebration of The Rotary Foundation Centennial, donate generously, and participate in doing good in the world.  –Chuck
