As the end of our calendar year approaches, Rotarians might consider stepping forward to become a Rotary Benefactor. A Benefactor is an individual who informs The Rotary Foundation in writing that they have provided for the Foundation in their estate plan, or who makes an outright gift of $1,000 or more to the Endowment Fund.

Rotary International confers Benefactor status on those who commit any amount in their estate plan to the endowment fund. 

The Annual Report is an excellent overview of what Rotary is doing around the world with the money entrusted by members to The Rotary Foundation.

The Rotary Foundation has a top-notch reputation for careful and judicious stewardship of our funds. In August, the charity rating service Charity Navigator announced that the Foundation had earned top marks for the 12th straight year. See the Foundation’s Charity Navigator rating, here:  . 

Obtain details about becoming a Benefactor from our Planned Giving point of contact, Jack Zalaha, the Foundation Committee Chair, Pete Leenhouts, or Committee Member John Erickson.

For more about planned giving to our Foundation, please see and talk to Jack Zalaha, our Club's Planned Giving point of contact.
