Club Report
Bill Gorman talked about the Rotary International Foundation.  This year is the 100th anniversary its formation.  https://www.rotary.org/myrotary/en/rotary-foundation . The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Rotary Foundation helps fund our humanitarian activities, from local service projects to global initiatives.  This year the Foundation is trying to reach a goal of $300 million.
The Foundation is made up of three major funds:
  • Annual 
  • Polio Plus
  • Endowment
The Foundation’s Centennial will be celebrated at the “Million Dollar Dinner” which will take place January 9th in Tsawwassen.  Keynote speaker is RI President John Germ. The Million Dollar Dinner is a celebration and recognition of Rotarians and friends of Rotary who have made new contributions of US$10,000 or made a new bequest of US$10,000 to The Rotary Foundation. Watch this space and the District website for details. - See more at: http://rotary5040.org/event/million-dollar-dinner/#sthash.OipsyoGo.dpuf
