On Tuesday, Aaron Oppenheimer, talked about the importance of giving to The Rotary Foundation. Below is a link to see the giving that each club in our District 6250.
Sun Prairie Rotary has given $5,400 YTD and has exceeded our goal for the year. We currently average $148.19 per capita, meaning on average, our members give $148.19 per year to The Foundation. This is up 35% compared to 2011-12. There are 52 active members in our club. Only 23 members have donated to The Rotary Foundation this year.
Imagine how much more, club giving could be, if more members gave to The Rotary Foundation...
Sun Prairie Rotary has been fortunate to receive many District Grants in recent years. This money is made possible by District 6250 Rotarian's giving to The Rotary Foundation. CharityNavigator.org gives ranks The Rotary Foundation 96 out of 100 points: CLICK HERE for more information.
Did you know that Madison After Hours Rotary Club is a "New Generations" club and they have 30 members. Their per capita is higher than ours at $175.67. I would hope that next year, Sun Prairie Rotary can exceed or meet them and raise our per capita to $175.00 for 2016-17. If they can do it, so can we!
