Janice Kurth’s (Rotary District Foundation Committee Chairperson at Rotary District 5340) talk covered the Rotary foundation including its Mission of building peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, supporting mothers and children, and helping to grow local economies. she explained how giving to the annual fund comes back to our club when we do district grants and global grants.

There are 3 ways to give to the Rotary foundation. one is polio plus, number two is to the endowment fund, number three is to the annual fund.

Janice presented to banners to our Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary club for the 2016-2017 rotary year for 100% member participation and donations that year.

Janice also talked about the awards that members can receive for giving to the Rotary foundation which include the Paul Harris society, Paul Harris award levels, the bequest society and the major donor… she encouraged our members to join the Paul Harris society by signing up for a direct deposit of $86 per month which adds up to $1000 a year for those who are able to do so and for all Rotarians to make The Rotary foundation their charity of choice. Please talk to our clubs foundation chair, Paul Butler with any questions on these various giving programs.

Janice also mentioned that the Rotary foundation received a four-star rating from charity navigator, which rates all foundations in the United States. The Rotary foundation was voted the number one foundation into 2016 where 92% of donations are put to work in the programs and only 6% goes to fund raising expenses and a paltry 2% for administrative cost.
