At our weekly meeting on Mon., Oct. 3, 2011 Foundation Chair Dwight Hurd kicked off this year’s Columbus Rotary Foundation Annual Campaign.  He presented members with our theme, "The Next 100" and logo.

Dwight walked us through a PowerPoint presentation that explained the various restricted and unrestricted sources of funding for use on our club programs.  The end result is that less than $90,000 is currently available for unrestricted giving to many of our projects within our community and abroad. 
We all know our club does good work, and we all contribute countless hours and time to support more than 30 programs and committees. But, we also need your annual campaign support. Member gifts are the primary source of funding our community programs. You know the economy has been tough. Did you also know that membership roles and giving levels are down in recent years? So, we need your support now more than ever. Without it, we cannot continue all of our vital community programming.
Contributions can be made to the Columbus Rotary Foundation and mailed to 1225 Dublin Road, Columbus, Ohio 43215 or dropped off on Mondays.
