Welcome from the District Foundation Chair
I would like to welcome you to our first District Foundation Quarterly Newsletter, "Engage!" The name seems appropriate considering our 2013-2014 Rotary Theme from RI President, Ron Burton, "Engage Rotary, Change Lives." This letter is to help you Engage with our Rotary Foundation.
Your Foundation Team hopes that you will take the time to read the important information that will be inside each edition and find useful tips and reports to help you with your fundraising, grant writing, reporting, or just check where your Club stands on your yearly giving to date.
You will also find success stories on District and Global projects that many of our Clubs take on each year. Of course, we will keep you informed on our fight to beat Polio once and for all. There will be something of interest for each Rotarian or Club and hope you will help by sharing your success stories with the rest of the District.
As your DRFC, I am proud to be associated with a terrific group of dedicated Rotarians throughout our District who believe in doing good in the world and in their communities. I also want to recognize the dedication of Past District Governor Rob Brown who dedicated over 10 years leading the District Foundation. Thank you PDG Rob for your love of the Foundation.
In the past three years, we have taken great strides being a Foundation Pilot District for The Future Visions Program and I thank each and every Rotarians for their patience while we have learned how to Do Good In the World with the new Future Visions program. We are now moving forward with Future Visions throughout the entire World.
Please enjoy reading our first edition of Engage!
Claude Morissette, DRFC 2012-2015
