Rotary FoundationThere are many ways to raise funds for a charity.  We can ask for cash outright,  we can raffle off prizes,  we can attend bingos or other events that raise dollars.  This fresh event largely meant no monies were asked for – today.  But it committed the donor in a different way. In our case Rotarians committed four and a half million dollars to the Rotary Foundation – in writing.   As Rotarians we all understand the importance of the Rotary Foundation.  We all know we should support it.  Most of us do.   This unique approach tapped a new source of monies in a relatively painless way.
