Dear Fellow Rotarians in District 7070,

On Giving Tuesday, 3 December, The Rotary Foundation will try to surpass last year's record of $321,000 in online donations to the Foundation in a single day. As your district's leader, you can help us raise awareness and funds so that together we can keep Doing Good in the World.

How can you help us reach our fundraising goal?
Share our new Giving Tuesday video with your clubs and on social media.
Encourage members to donate on Giving Tuesday.

A Foundation to build on

see this link: https://www.rotary.org/en/foundation-build?gclid=Cj0KCQiAk7TuBRDQARIsAMRrfUYGAWtKpKjTxu4Xp7wzx_K_DTujH-Lo6cklnOJhLh2mZFjwyS8Np4saAoU1EALw_wcB

The Rotary Foundation is recognized as one of the most effective and well-managed charitable organizations in the world, with 12 consecutive four-star ratings from Charity Navigator and an A-plus rating from CharityWatch.

We know that the Foundation is helping Rotarians do good in the world, but it can be difficult to convey the full scope of its work. So we’ve put together some figures from the past five years — 2014-15 through 2018-19 — to tell the story of the generosity of Rotarians and the good work that the Foundation supports.

November is Rotary Foundation Month; to make a contribution, go to rotary.org/donate.

Average yearly giving over five years per Rotarian: Canada , the third highest country in the world at $344 US per Rotarian

*In addition, in the past five years the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

has contributed matching funds in the amount of $409 million.
