 Rotary (International) Foundation Fund Drive:


OK everyone one more time =  in the next few weeks we will be kicking off our push for the Rotary (International) Foundation donation drive so that our club can meet their specified donation goal for this FY. 


Our club offered as its Rotary (International) Foundation goal that we would work hard to collect at least an average of $150 from each member for the year towards support for our International Rotary Foundation funds.


In addition,


With your donations to the Polio Plus Challenge we are hoping to be rid of this scourge by the end of 2012 or no later than 2016. 


Our club's goal presented to District back in June of 2009, was that we would work hard to have our club annual contributions average $150 per member to the Rotary International's Foundation.  Please make sure you donate. 


If you have not yet contributed or pledged a contribution through our invoice process, get your check to Bringier McConnell or me (Frank Ferrante) as soon as possible.  Checks can be made out to "The Rotary Foundation." Ask about how contributions can be made by Credit Card on-line through the Rotary.org web site - go to Contribute and follow the instructions.   Thanks all for your support!


Added feature of Rotary (International) Foundation:  What are Annual Program Fund Reconition Points?  What do they mean? What can I do to enjoy their use? If I transfer them to a friend does that reduce my PHF status?  Does the transfer have to be to a Rotary Member?   What was the purpose of this special bonus being provided to those that make PHF?

To be continued next week.
