November is Foundation Month

November is Rotary Foundation month, and 2017 will be the 100th birthday of the Foundation.
The Foundation was created in 1917 by Rotary International's sixth president, Arch C. Klumph, as an endowment fund for Rotary “to do good in the world.” Its event-filled history is a story of Rotarians learning the value of service to humanity. You have all heard of Rotary's efforts to eradicate Polio. In addition to End Polio Now, the Rotary Foundation helps Rotarians do good in the world through its Six Areas of Focus:








That first gift that all started it in 1917 was for the amount of $26.50. If you have never given to the Rotary Foundation, would you consider giving a gift of $26.50 in this anniversary year? If you have given in the past, please consider increasing your gift by $26.50 or more. If you have any questions about the Foundation, please contact Joe Mauss 605-610-5035. Thank you for your generous support of the Rotary Foundation!
