Rotary District 7870 Information Center
I am sending out this to update everyone on the status of the District-Wide Global Grant.  Three weeks ago, I sent a letter to club and district leaders promoting a unique opportunity to access Rotary Foundation Funds via a Global Grant.  This unique opportunity presented itself due to the world pandemic and the many needs associated with it both locally and around the world. 
Something every Rotary club should do on a regular basis, especially at this time of the year. It is time to recognize the successful completion of your club president’s year or the long-time efforts of a great member.
 
What better way to recognize a person than creating an engraved brick or paver in the Rotary Wheel in the Paul Harris Memorial Garden at the Little Red Schoolhouse in Wallingford, VT.
The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world.
Why should I donate to The Rotary Foundation? Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting our service projects around the world.
How does The Rotary Foundation use donations? Our 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes. With donations like yours, we’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases. Your donation also trains future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthens local economies.
What impact can one donation have? It can save a life. A child can be protected from polio with as little as 60 cents. Our partners make your donation go even further. For every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $2.
What are the areas of the Foundation’s focus? Promoting Peace, Providing Clean Water, Saving Mothers and Children, Supporting Education, Growing Local Economies, and Fighting Disease.  Even the United States has problems in all six areas of focus, the reason for Global Grants, assistance going in all directions to help promote a better world.
