November is Rotary Foundation month!  It's a good time to reflect on the great Rotary Foundation sponsored programs we support and on how each of us can contribute to make sure these programs continue.  Our Club is asking each member to contribute at least $10 to the Foundation when they pay their annual dues.  Our Rotary Foundation sponsors a broad range of educational and humanitarian programs that save and change lives here and abroad.  These programs are the lifeblood of Rotary, creating world peace and understanding through the lives touched by the programs.  Ask any Rotarian who has visited/worked on an international project about the difference made by these programs.  There are many wonderful stories of saved and changed lives around the world.  Our contributions to the Rotary Foundation fund these Rotary programs.  While our Foundation is quite healthy (one of the largest foundations in the world), there is so much more we need to do.  Your annual contribution and/or a contribution to the Foundation Permanent Fund (through a major gift or benefactor contribution) fuels our Rotary programs.  A contribution to the Foundation is one of the best investments you can make with nearly 100% going to Rotary programs that save and change lives.  Learn more about The Rotary Foundation here and make a contribution to continue saving and changing lives.  These programs work and are a great investment for a better and safer world.  Source:
