Participation in First Class Initiative grows Congratulations and thanks to the district governors-elect, all of whom have led by example and made history. Every incoming DGE has demonstrated a commitment to The Rotary Foundation by joining RI President-elect Ron Burton’s First Class Initiative, making a personal contribution to the Foundation before taking office.
Joining the initiative are 2013-14 regional Rotary Foundation coordinators, district Rotary Foundation chairs, and club presidents. President-elect Burton looks forward to sharing a report of this accomplishment during the RI Convention in Lisbon, Portugal, in June.
Set your Annual Fund goals today! Setting goals strengthens Rotary and grows support for our Foundation. Did you know that Rotary Clubs that set goals have a per capita giving of over US$100, which is approximately 110% higher than clubs that do not set goals?
Rotary Club Central is the new online tool designed to help clubs set goals, track membership initiatives, service activities, and Foundation giving. Club officers are encouraged to log in to Member Access and use Rotary Club Central to submit 2013-14 Foundation giving goals. Best practices are to submit goals prior to the International Convention in Lisbon, however Rotary Club Central will accept goals throughout the year.
