Our annual goal to support the Foundation of Rotary International needs to be met by the end of June. The best, simplest and most direct way to do that is to go online and make your contribution at <my rotary.org>. You may also contribute by giving a check to our club secretary, Cliff Gerber. If you give by check, make certain that the check is made payable to “The Rotary Foundation.”
The Shrewsbury club’s goal for this year is to average a $125 gift per member. We regularly exceed our goal and we are counting on all of our members to help us maintain our excellent record.
Donations to the Foundation support projects at home through District Grants and Global Grants, fight cancer, provide healthcare in places of need, provide clean water among a variety of other charitable causes. Most prominent of all is Rotary’s effective crusade to eradicate polio.
The Rotary Foundation is highly rated by Charity Watch and was cited by CNN as the most effective global charity.
