Are you wondering how you can make a big difference during Rotary Foundation Month? Here are some FAQ’s about Foundation giving:

Q: What are Major Gifts and how are they different from Major Donors?

A: Major Donors are individuals and couples whose combined cumulative outright giving over time to The Rotary Foundation reaches $10,000 or more. Major Gifts are donations of $10,000 or more made at one time, either as outright gifts or planned gifts through your estate. Major gifts at times may be made with a 3-year pledge.

Q: What is The Endowment Fund and what does it do?

A; A donation to the Endowment Fund is a gift that goes on giving beyond your lifetime.  It is your legacy in Rotary!

Interest earnings from the Endowment Fund are spent on Rotary Foundation programs. If desired, your donation or bequest can be designated to your area of interest.

Your gift to the Endowment Fund will keep The Rotary Foundation strong well into the future, providing a continuous stream of income that will fund programs in perpetuity.

Q: Where do I find the Endowment documents and forms?

A: On the Zones 26 & 27 website Endowment/Major Gift Resources. Some favorites are: Pocket Guide to Planning a Legacy, Your Legacy Notification Card, and the “filing cabinet” in the Planned Giving Resources A to Z.

Q: Where can I learn more or talk to someone about making a gift?

A: Our team includes our Rotary Major Giving & Planned Gift Officer:
