   The Every Rotarian, Every Year initiative asks all Rotarians to support The Rotary Foundation through a donation to the Annual Fund every year and by getting involved in a Foundation project or program. 

   If you haven’t had the opportunity to make your contribution yet this Rotary Year to the Annual Fund, now is the time, as the end of the calendar year is fast approaching!  

   How do you make such a contribution? You can do it via our Treasurer at any club meeting, through the Rotary International support center ( 866-976-8279 - have your credit or debit card ready), or online at (sign-in via MyRotary required). 

   Rotarians know that The Rotary Foundation has a top-notch reputation for careful and judicious stewardship of our funds. See the Foundation’s Charity Navigator rating, here:  

   Our Annual Report, just published, provides a superlative overview of what Rotarians are accomplishing around the world.

   There are a wide variety of Rotary programs in which members can participate. These include Peace Fellowships, Scholarships, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Rotary Youth Exchange, New Generations Service Exchange, District Community Grants, Global Grants,  and Vocational Training Teams.   

   What are the Foundation projects and programs in which our Club is currently engaged? Rotary Youth Exchange, Global and District Grants (specifically, the Dignity Toilets for Togo Global Grant being developed, and the Rotary Horticultural Pavilion being built at Chimacum High School with the support of a District Community Grant), Rotary Youth Exchange (through which we are hosting a high school student from South Korea and a high school student in Slovakia) and the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), which take place in mid-March, 2020. Please get involved!   

   This Rotary video, while older, provides an excellent overview of the programs funded through our donations to the Annual Fund.

   Questions? Foundation Committee members John Erickson and Pete Leenhouts can answer them!
