WE HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO THE LAST TWO MONTHS IN ANNUAL FOUNDATION GIVING Last year (April 30, 2013) total Annual Fund (AF) giving – $ 506,092.58 This year (April 24, 2014) total Annual Fund (AF) giving – $ 584,617.40 STRIVE FOR A RECORD OF $200 PER CAPITA! If we are going to be successful in reaching $200 per member, it is critical that all 2013-2014 contributions get recorded before June 30, 2014. Historically, nearly half of all annual contributions to The Rotary Foundation are received between April and June. Delays in processing money and recognitions already exist at the Foundation, and the situation is only going to get worse as the end of the Rotary year approaches. Be a trend setter, have your Foundation contributions in by May. Again, think of May as the new June and submit your contributions no later than the end of May and preferably even earlier. This will be very important for clubs that are trying to earn the EREY and the 100% Sustaining Member Club banners for 2013-14. Remember… if your Clubs want to qualify for a District Grant in 2014-15, they must achieve EREY status by May 15, 2014! That is: Every active Club member gives something AND the Club averages at least $100/member.
