Aloha District 5000 Rotarians,
Where can you donate money, get a potential tax benefit, get the money back in three years for your club, and make a difference in the world? The Rotary Foundation is the only vehicle that can do this for Rotarians and Rotary Clubs. Thanks to careful management, the Foundation boasts a four-star ranking among all charitable foundations and a 96/100 score on charitynavigator.org.
Established in 1917, The Rotary Foundation provides the vehicle for Rotarians to transform their gifts of treasure and talent into projects that change lives in their communities and around the world. The Foundation helps Rotary work towards eradicating polio and promoting peace. Global grants empower Rotarians to collaborate across oceans to provide solutions to challenges such as poverty and illiteracy that have lasting impacts.
In Hawaii, the money that returns to the District after The Foundation has invested it for three years, is used to fund District Grants. Clubs are allocated a “no match” amount that they can use for a local or international project. Separately, they receive a “match” allocation that they must match with club funds. Global grant funds are also available to clubs to multiply their resources in partnership with another Rotary Club in the home country of the project. (Please visit the D5000 and RI websites for more detailed information.)
Has your club qualified for a District grant? Are you making the most of your members’ donations to The Rotary Foundation? Share what you can of your treasure and continue to Be a Gift to the World.
Yours in Rotary,
Del and Diana
