Dear District 7190 Rotarians:
We trust that you’re “in tune” for the upcoming Rotary Foundation District Event at the Cohoes Music Hall. After all, it is a musical.
We hope to see you all on Wednesday, December 7, at 6 p.m. for an evening of food, drink and fellowship with Rotarians from throughout the District.
There will be a silent auction for your holiday shopping, followed by a performance of “It’s a Wonderful Life — The Musical.”
Tickets are available online or by calling 237-5858. Prices: Adults $35, alumni of Foundation programs $20, children $10, family package (2 adults and 2 children) $80.
As we’ve done in prior years, we will continue to offer Honorary Committee recognition for those who give $100 or more to the Rotary Foundation.
Your gift to the Foundation provides humanitarian, educational and medical aid to those in need throughout the world. Furthermore, fully 50% of the money we give comes back to the District to support club projects, both local and international.
W e should take special pride that the Rotary Foundation has the coveted 4-star rating by the Charity Navigator. It earns this largely because for the three years immediately following the donation, the money is parked in an interest-bearing account that pays for the Foundation overhead. At the end of the three years fully 100% of what you give goes into programming — and that’s unique among charities. It’s that time, too, that the 50% of a giving year comes back to the District that raised it.
Kindly comlpete the donation form if you would like to make a donation and send it with your check to PDG Anne Cargile.
If you made a donation to The Rotary Foundation of $100 or more since July 1, OR if you are on the TRF-Direct automatic deduction plan, please so indicate on the attached form and send it to Anne. Your name will be included on the Honorary Committee list.
Please note that your Honorary Committee contribution is tax-deductible and will be credited to your Foundation account toward Paul Harris Fellowship recognition.
We thank you for your consideration. Our gifts will be helping to make our communities and those beyond a healthier, safer and happier place to live.
