Update: 2017-2018 fundraising
£33,457 raised for End Polio Now in Guernsey!
|The Guernsey Overseas Aid Commission (the Commission) has pledged to match fund the fundraising efforts by the Rotary Club of Guernsey & Rotary Guernesiais for the historic effort to eradicate only the second disease in human history, polio.
In reaching its decision to partner with the Rotary in Guernsey, the Commission noted that they had already raised over £66,000 since 2006.
The fundraising agreement will see the Commission match funding every pound raised by the island’s two Rotary clubs up to an overall total of £40,000 thus doubling the money they raise to £80,000. As the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has already agreed to match fund the money raised by Rotary on the basis of £2 for every £1 raised, up to an additional £160,000 will be added to the money raised here in Guernsey.
In other words, the fundraising by the Rotary clubs in Guernsey and the Commission’s pledge of £40,000 could generate a total of up to £240,000 in support of Rotary’s work to end the paralyzing disease.
