Our guest speaker was fellow Rotarian Bill Kmiecik who brought us up to date of the work of the Foundation and the importance of individual Rotarians continuing their support. 
 

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.

Emily Kehoe was our guest speaker. Her presentation regarding the history of the Shelter, its programs, facilities , and the ongoing need for their services was very informative. Our Club supports the Shelter, and encourages others to do so. See: www.helpaveteran.org/
