At its June meeting, the Richfield Rotary Foundation (RRF) Board decided to undertake a fund drive for the benefit of both the RRF and The Rotary Foundation (TRF).   

The last joint fund drive was conducted in the spring of 2015, with contributions extending through the 2015-2016 program year.   This fund drive is intended to extend and build upon contributions made in 2015-2016.

The Rotary International website highlights the importance of contributions to TRF, including Polio Plus:

The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.

While TRF’s reach is broad in scope. our own Richfield Rotary Foundation (RRF) supports charitable projects and activities of the Richfield Rotary Club, which has been serving our local community for the past 65 years.  A gift to the Richfield Rotary Foundation will help our club continue its legacy of service to the Richfield community.   

As noted in an e-mail from President Chip Groth, members are encouraged to complete and return the attached pledge form to either Chip or RRF President Lynne Alexander at your earliest convenience.   Questions may be directed to either Lynne or Chip.
