Rotary International is establishing a disaster response fund that will facilitate grants to support relief and recovery efforts in areas affected by a disaster. 
  • The Rotary Disaster Response Fund will be able to accept cash contributions and District Designated Funds (DDF). It is a general disaster-related reserve, and contributions cannot be designated for specific events or disasters.
  • Contributions directed to the Rotary Disaster Response Fund will be credited toward a club’s annual giving goal and per capita giving calculations, but will not apply to SHARE and the District Designated Fund calculation.
  • These contributions are eligible for all recognition opportunities, including Every Rotarian, Every Year; Rotary Foundation Sustaining Member; Paul Harris Fellow; Paul Harris Society; Major Donor; and Arch Klumph Society. They also count toward all club recognition opportunities.
We expect more information about this new Rotary International Fund in the near future.
