Rotary is closely monitoring the pandemic of COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus, and continuously assessing the potential impact on Rotary operations, events, and members.

You are all in our thoughts. Take care of yourselves: 
Practice social distancing, Wash your hands, and Stay healthy.
Your health and safety are always our top priorities.

The current health pandemic has changed the way we do things.

The Rotary District 7150 Foundation has modified certain District Grant procedures to ease the difficulties some of us may encounter and encourage participation in District and/or Global Grants.

During these extenuating circumstances for the 2020-2021 Rotary year...

1) District and Global Grants addressing only COVID-19 emergency relief are allowed to conduct financial transactions prior to their District Grants' approval. Save your receipts, invoices, cancelled checks, etc. for your Final Report 2021!!.

2) The average $50 per capita Annual Fund requirement has been waived.

The Rotary Foundation is all about:

~ supporting Rotarians’ efforts to change lives and serve communities.

~ transforming your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.

 

The Rotary Foundation is how we get things done.
