Speaker: Richard Drucker spoke to us about what the foundation is and what it does for us and the world. The face of Rotary is about what we give to the community, our country and around the world. There are 3 funds for the foundation are: Annual, Program, Polio Plus, and Endowment Fund. He spoke of what are funds go for when we donate to the foundation. When children in other countries don’t have clean drinking water, 250,000 children die from water born disease, when water filters only cost $75 each Rotary helps countries with donating filters. Think about even donating your change in your pocket at the end of each day for a month to Rotary Foundation or what you spend in Starbucks coffee in one month’s time. It’s not much everyday but added up it can help so many people.
