1. Giving Tuesday
Giving Tuesday, November 28th, is a great time to promote Foundation giving. Support our Foundation on Giving Tuesday, November 28th. Make a gift to the Foundation and share your support on social media. The top clubs in fundraising, participation, and online giving will be featured on My Rotary. Read about last year’s honorees.

2. Other ideas to promote the Foundation

a. Share our impact. Take time during a club meeting to show members how the Foundation transforms gifts into service projects that advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace by fighting disease, improving the quality of education, protecting the environment, alleviating poverty, and doing even more. Invite a Foundation scholarship recipient or a community member who was involved in or benefited from a grant project to speak about the Foundation’s impact on their life.
b. Thank our donors. The Foundation will be sending special thank-you messages to donors around the world in November. But your leadership offers a more personal connection and deep understanding of the impact their contributions make. Take a moment to write a thank-you note or recognize donors during a club meeting.
3. International Café of Global Grants – Thursday, November 16th - Recording. If you were not able to attend the International Café of Global grants, here is the recording.

4. The Annual Report of Operations for the Rotary Foundation can be reached by clicking on this link. It’s a great review of all aspects of the Foundation.

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  D7930 Foundation Committee
