Giving in the 21st Century
Giving to The Rotary Foundation is always great, but giving electronically is even better. Through Rotary Direct, you can determine the frequency and the amount of a gift given monthly, quarterly or annually. (Find out how on rotary.org.) Alternatively, hitting the “donate” button on either rotary.org or 7780rotary.org is easy on you, and less expensive for the folks at Headquarters to manage. Of course, checks are always appreciated, but managing funds transfers by paper checks is so … 20th century. Giving online is faster, less work for the Club Treasurer and the data can always be followed on-line.
So give anyway you are most comfortable, but remember that your dollars go furthest when you give online!
Foundation Grant Training, Now Online!
The 2017 Grants Management training is now completely online. The modules – three modules that are each about 20 minutes long—will soon be up and active on rotary.org’s Learning Center. Take then when you like, as you like, where you like! But take them. One of the requirements for club involvement in Rotary Foundation Grant activity in 2017-18 is for two members of your club to take the updated course.
