November is Rotary Foundation Month

November is Rotary Foundation Month

The month of November for me means the beginning of the holiday season. I’m eating leftover Halloween candy while I am thinking about the menu for Thanksgiving and even beginning to start the dreaded Christmas shopping list.


November is also Rotary Foundation month. The Foundation was established over 100 years ago with an initial contribution of $26.50. Today, The Foundation has a net worth of over $1 billion, and it has been recognized by the Association of Fundraising Professionals as the World’s Outstanding Foundation.



Your donation can be as little or large as you wish, and the funds will be used to support Rotary’s valuable programs worldwide. Locally, we see funds being returned by The Foundation through District Simplified Grants. We see how our money has been used every time we go the Farmers’ Market.  The playground that Rotary built is pretty impressive. Our service and our donations are making a difference in our community and around the world.

As we celebrate The Rotary Foundation this month, please remember our pledge to donate $100 per year per member to help those who are in need. No matter the amount of your contribution, all funds are welcomed and needed.
