Our Rotary Foundation
 
Marilyn Bedell gave a broad overview of the Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Foundation (TRF) started just over 100 years ago and has grown to a Foundation that has just over a billion dollars in assets. In 2016/17, TRFs centennial year, Rotarians and Friends of Rotary donated over 300 Million to the annual programs fund.
 
TRF has a perfect 100 score for both financial oversight, and accountability and transparency. On Giving Tuesday 2016, CNBC, one of the leading consumer and business news media outlets in the U.S., named as a top 10 charities in the world, ranking The Rotary Foundation No. 5.
 
In 2016/2017, Rotarians in District 7850 contributed approximately US$103.12/ member, for a total of US$150,350.71 per year to the Annual Programs Fund/Share. Polio Donations for the District 7850 = US$37,302.

Jim Jung from the Rotary Club of St. Johnsbury, VT died this year and he left a bequest of US$27,366.73 to the Permanent Fund.

Bedell described how these fund then get used as both Global and District Grants to support humanitarian projects, scholarships and vocational training team.  

Bruce Pacht described his involvement in a vocational training team with a team from Geisel School of Medicine.  As an outcome of the grant both the Rotary Club of Hanover and Lebanon provided donations to provide nutritional porridge packages.

Several other stories were shared about grants completed in District 7850 for Tropical Storm Irene Recovery, Peace and Conflict Resolution in Rwanda, Water in Ghana, to name a few.  
 
Bedell talked about the two other funds that are part of the Rotary Foundation, the permanent fund, and special funds for Polio and for our peace centers.
 
She ended her talk reminding us to celebrate what we have been able to accomplish in the first 100 years of the Foundation, especially our work to eradicate polio.  It his now time for all of us to think of ways we can contribute to the next 100 year of our Rotary Foundation.

We also sent $960 to the Haven to assist other local families during the holidays! Thank you everyone who supported and played with us last year!
