Have you made your 2023-24 donation to the Rotary Foundation? If not, please consider making your contribution and help your club and the district reach our Annual Fund goals. Remember the money you donate today comes back to the District in 3 years to make District Grants and Global Grants.
$100 will make you a sustaining member of the Rotary Foundation. $1,000 donation will make you a Paul Harris Fellow and make you eligible for the Paul Harris Society. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far this year.
Has your club made plans for our upcoming round of District Grants? Now is the time to start working on your project. We will open the District Grants Module for your club once your club becomes certified. Grants must be submitted no later than May 31, 2024. 
As has been our practice, for your club to become certified to receive a grant, you must enter goals on Rotary Club Central, submit a MOU, and have at least two club members attend one of the four Grants Management Seminars. Grant Management Seminars are all online. Register using these links:
Speaking of District Grants - if you had a 2023-24 District Grant, your Final Report, including Financial Documentation is due March 31, 2024. All items are report by posting to the District Grants Module.
If you have any questions about the district grant process please reach out to Nicki Klein (districtgrants@rotardistrict5650.org) or myself for additional information.
Thanks again to all who have contributed to the Rotary Foundation. We are currently at 75.6% of our goal thanks to your generosity
