The Rotary Foundation
By January 31, the Rotary Club of Grants Pass will have recorded $11,420 in contributions to the Annual Fund, or 61 percent of Club President Jean Zech-Manhart’s goal of $18,750. We have also recorded $6,811 for PolioPlus, which is 136 percent of the $5,000 goal.
Total contributions to date, $21,401.60, includes $500.00 toward a District 5110 grant and 2,670.35 in endowment fund proceeds from the estates of a non-Rotarian couple, now reaching a total of $298,486.39 in the past 12 months.
The 150 members include 131 Paul Harris Fellows, a number of whom are now Multiple Paul Harris Fellows as they continue to contribute even more after they are named Paul Harris Fellows. The club has recognized 374 Paul Harris Fellows over the years.
Currently there are 21 Benefactors, 12 members of the Bequest Society, 5 Major Donors, 6 members of the Paul Harris Society, and a number of members of the PolioPlus Society who pledge $100 per year.
New in District 5110 this year is a Triple Crown Award to recognize Major Donors who are members of the Bequest Society, Paul Harris Society, and PolioPlus Society. Giff Gates was recognized as the club’s first qualifier.
Another great year completed. Thanks to all of the volunteers and all the great athletes.
A Membership Meeting and Fireside will be held at the Grants Pass Museum of Art – upsatairs. The meeting begins at 6:00PM. Food and wine will be served.
