Our District Governor's November Message

In November each year, Rotarians throughout the world take time to reflect on the work of The Rotary Foundation, the charity that sets us apart from other service organisations.
It is worth reminding ourselves of what the Foundation is all about – doing good in the world.  The key focus of The  Rotary Foundation for over 100 years has been around peace, health, education and poverty, and through its unique funding model and its sheer scale, The Rotary Foundation enables 1.3 million Rotarians around the world to imagine and implement local projects addressing global issues.
Why support Rotary’s charity?  Well, it delivers projects on a scale otherwise not possible. The Rotary Foundation’s District Grants enable Club projects to deliver greater impact and Global Grants to support critical causes around the world. These projects not only inspire yourselves as Rotarians but also in your community attract people who want to make a difference.
Rotary Foundation Australia and The New Zealand Rotary Clubs Charitable Trust have produced an excellent guide to The Rotary Foundation. This week I will send this easy to read the brochure to all Rotarians in our District, as I want the information contained in the guide to be available to everyone.
