Foundation committee 2021 - 2022


Foundation

Committee

 

Chrissie Wilkinson (Chair),  Alan Newberry,  Dave Shaw,  Garry Urwin

 

Our mission for 2021/2022 is to contribute to Rotary’s own and only charity, F0UNDATION, and to spread the message about how it works and what it achieves, both inside and outside of Rotary.

 

We will attempt to meet the target contribution of $100 per member and I may hear you say, why should we raise money to send to America?  The crux of the matter is this..... we send the money into the Foundation fund.  It sits there in investments, and the interest pays the cost of Rotary International.  After the three years, it is released back with interest, basically for project grants around the world.

 

We hope to raise money by asking members to have ‘at home’ Foundation Feeds with other members and with their families and friends. Other fundraising events will be planned.  when we are able to carry out our usual activities.  We have ideas such as a car treasure hunt, a bingo evening and perhaps a household vs household quiz.

 

Should anyone want to suggest other events in order to help Foundation, then please do contact me with your thoughts.

 

Our committee is also suggesting a voluntary contribution to Foundation as we have such a definite target to reach.  Every little helps, so any contribution of any size will be gratefully welcomed.
