Increase Foundation commitment, set club annual giving goals
Club goal-setting is vital to the Every Rotarian, Every Year effort in building sustained support for The Rotary Foundation's Annual Programs Fund, the primary source of funding for the Foundation’s humanitarian and educational programs.
Setting a goal that is specific, manageable, and achievable will instill your club's members with motivation and commitment, increasing the likelihood the goal will be met. It's a way to help every Rotarian understand how vital his or her support is to carrying out the Foundation's mission of improving health, supporting education, and alleviating poverty.
Please be sure that your club sets its 2010-11 annual giving goal as soon as possible and sends it to your district governor-elect. The 2010-11 Fund Development Club Goal Report Form is available online , and copies of the form were distributed at the presidents-elect training seminar. The club goal and percentage of goal achieved will appear on the District Monthly Contribution Report.
Through each Rotarian's contribution, the Foundation has the combined resources to improve people's lives on a tremendous scale. A US$100 contribution, for example, helps provide 50 mosquito nets for women and children in Tanzania; $500, a borewell to supply safe drinking water to 65 people in a rural village in India; and $1,000, microenterprise loans for 20 women in Guatemala. As your club sets its goal for the coming year, please remember that The Future of Rotary Is in Your Hands .
