100 th Birthday Party

The Rotary Foundation was first established in 1917, as an endowment fund, by Rotary International.  Formally established 1928.  The Rotary Foundation supports the efforts of Rotary International to  achieve international understanding and peace and further friendly relations through international  humanitarian, educational and cultural exchange programs. Thank you to all individuals and clubs that have contributed to the Rotary Foundation. Those clubs  that have an average of over $120 per person giving will be considered “priority clubs” for receiving  matching grant contributions. Submit your District Grant request by August 15 to  district5810grants@gmail.com Thank you to all individuals and clubs that have contributed to the Rotary Foundation.  On May 13 we celebrated the 100 year Birthday Party of our Rotary Foundation. We had over 450 people  attend the event where we enjoyed fellowship, music, a casino night, a live auction and prizes.  I want to  thank all the donors and volunteers that worked with Melissa Jordan with the Rotary Club of Dallas‐ Uptown  to make this a fabulous event.   At this event we also recognized Darren Collins with the Rotary Club of Desoto who received the Service  Above Self award from the Rotary Foundation.
