While the time has come for the Rotary year to wrap up and a new
year begin, the work isn’t done yet! June is the last chance for you to
send in your Foundation giving. Take a minute to write that check to The Rotary
Foundation – not because you have to, but because you want to. Think about the
impact your money can have on the world. Your money means there will be
children who never contract Polio, entire communities will have safe, clean
water and people will be able to learn skills that will allow them to support
themselves and their families. Literally 5 minutes of your time means you could
change the lives of people around the world. What better way to invest your
time and money?
As a point of information, all payments dated June 30 or
earlier will be credited to this Rotary year. Thanks to the many updates to the
Rotary.org website, they have become much better at tracking donations and
applying them to the proper Rotary year.
Now is also the time to begin looking ahead to the coming
year. We have a new Foundation recognition program rolling out in our district
next year (ask your President about The Winner’s Circle!). A bit of planning
will make all the difference.
