Presidents Message: 3/19/14

This week I would like to tell you a little about the Rotary International Foundation or as a lot of you know it as your Paul Harris Fellow Account. In most cases when we give money to the RI Foundation we donate it as un-restrictive giving and as such in three years our District 5300 will receive half of what you donated. The District will use some of the money for its projects and the rest is available for grants to the clubs. RI uses the half of your donation not returned to the clubs to pay it Health, Hunger Humanity projects worldwide, scholarships, matching grant funds and so much, more. The funds we give to the Polio Plus Campaign can only be used in the fight to wipe out Polio worldwide therefore they are restrictive funds. Rotary is the only service club that uses every dollar donated for what it was intended for, Rotary pays its overhead from the interest it earns from the three year investment  of our donations. Because of that Rotary is rate at the top of rated charities in the United States, 100% of your donations go it the people who need our help in the world.

So the next time someone ask you to see if you could increase your pledge to the RI Foundation, think hard and long and see if you can spare a extra dollar or two each month. A little from each of us can make a world of difference to someone in a third world country who is trying to feed his or her family on five dollars a day or less. The people in this country we call poor would seem like kings to more than 25% of the world’s population.
