Your generous contributions to The Rotary Foundation are essential to securing and growing Rotary programs throughout the world. We recognize donors to express our gratitude for your commitment, offering individual and club recognition as well as naming opportunities that enable you to honor a friend or family member with a named or endowed gift.

Every Rotarian, Every Year Club  (EREY)

For clubs that achieve a minimum Annual Fund contribution of $100 per capita during the Rotary year, and every dues-paying member must personally contribute at least $25 to the Annual Fund during the year.  John Hall suggested that members could offer $20 for dinner each week with the difference going toward EREY.  Example:  $20.00 minus $13.50 (dinner cost), leaves $6.50 to either split between Happy/Sad and EREY or apply entirely to EREY.  Great idea, John!!  Monthly the Treasurer will submit the funds to Rotary Foundation under the donor's name.  REMINDER:  if you make your contribution directly to Rotary Foundation, please let your Treasurer know that you have done so.

EREY 2021/22 Donors:  7 to go for full participation by 30June2022.
