3. International & Foundation
The International & Foundation Committee has been set up to ensure that our club supports Rotary's International Projects and the Foundations mission to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace.
INTERNATIONAL & FOUNDATION
Club Vision "Bring the gift of Rotary to our Community & the World"
Chair: Junior Vice President - Caroline Paterson
The aim of the Foundation & International (F&I) committee is to support The Rotary Foundation and any other International cause or Charity that we feel is within our means.
The Rotary Foundation enables Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends who share its vision of a better world.
One of Blackburn & District Rotary Clubs Strategic Goals for 2015-16 is to increase our Foundation contribution and to become more involved in International Projects.
We will be supporting "End Polio Now" again this year through raising awareness and fundraising. We shall also bring to our communities attention the purpose and the message behind the purple crocuses planted thoughout Blackburn when they bloom again.
Our Annual Charity Ball is planned for Saturday the 19th of March 2016 where proceeds shall be distributed amongst local charities as well as being used to set up our Disaster Fund so we can assist financialy if Local or International disaster strikes. We shall also endevour througout the year to raise enough funds to allow us to donate an AquaBox and Shelter Box.
