Rotary 50 years ago ... according to the Simpson's


Wherever you go, your Rotary button identifies you as a member of a world fellowship of business and professional executives. You are recognized as part of an International organization dedicated to the ideal of service. Wear your Rotary button with pride, for it will introduce you to fellow Rotarians  everywhere.

Five tips for increasing your club's Foundation giving

Over the past four years, the Rotary Club of Honolulu Sunset, Hawaii, USA, has averaged $803 in per capita giving. District Annual Giving Subcommittee Chair Richard Zegar offers his top tips for increasing your club's giving:

  1. Select committed Rotarians to serve in fundraising positions for several years in a row. This consistency contributes to an "atmosphere of giving."
  2. Meet one-on-one with members to discuss The Rotary Foundation's work. Then ask them to join you in supporting the Foundation.
  3. Recognize new members by making donations to the Foundation in their names. Not only will you introduce them to individual recognition opportunities, but you'll also encourage their continued support.
  4. Use Foundation reports from RI Member Access to inform members of their current recognition levels and encourage them to reach the next level. Acknowledge club members who attain higher giving levels.
  5. Explain how effective and efficient The Rotary Foundation is compared with other charities. For example, tell members that 100 percent of their donations fund programs.

RI - Member Access: Have you logged in recently?

RI - Member Access isn't just a tool for updating your contact information or paying dues. It's an online destination offering a variety of useful information and functions that can enhance your Rotary experience.

If you haven't explored the site for a while, here are three reasons you should log in to Member Access.

  1. Track club goals. Launched in July, Rotary Club Central makes it possible for you to monitor your club's progress and achievements in three key areas: membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. Once you've entered this data, your club members, district governor, and assistant governor can also follow your accomplishments.
  2. Publicize your projects. Through Rotary Showcase, you can promote your club's achievements to other Rotarians and Facebook friends. Add your project or browse the site to see the good work other clubs are doing.
  3. Sign up for training. Learn about Rotary's Strategic Plan, six areas of focus, and how to apply for the Foundation's new grants. Each course includes resources and its own online community where you can talk with other participants and course moderators. Go to learn.rotary.org and register for a course today.

New process for submitting your club giving goals 

A new online tool is saving trees and saving time for club and district leaders. Rotary Club Central lets club officers set and submit their club's Foundation giving goals online. The tool replaces The Rotary Foundation Fund Development Club Goal Report Form and offers a clear and simple method for capturing and monitoring Foundation giving goals. District leaders also have access to their clubs' information and can make updates as needed.
