Peggy Strom, a member of the Arden Hills/Shoreview Rotary Club and our Foundation Mentor from D-5960, shared information about The Rotary Foundation (TRF). Here are some highlights:
  • TRF has received the highest rating possible (4 stars - perfect) from Charity Navigator for the last 15 years.
  • CNBC ranked TRF as one of the top charities for changing the world - #3 of 8,000.
  • Rotary International’s goal to eliminate polio from the world is nearing completion, with only Afghanistan and Pakistan reporting new cases.
  • The next major focus of TRF is human trafficking.
  • There are many ways to contribute to the Foundation, including: (1) Make a bequest in your Will, either in the original Will, or by adding a simple Codicil. (2) Write a check payable to The Rotary Foundation and get it to John Ordway. (3) Write a check to the Foundation and send it to Rotary International, telling John you have done so to keep our Club records up to date. (4) Make a gift online and tell John Ordway. (5) Use Rotary Direct to set up monthly contributions with a credit card (minimum $10/month.)
  • Jason Miller is a Major Donor, which means he has given more than $10,000 over time.  Peggy is shown below with Denise Jacobsen and Dana Rebelein.
