Howard Svigals, District 5020 Rotary Foundation Chair, spoke to the club about how Rotary Foundation transforms our gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent close to $3 billion in life-changing sustainable projects.  Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting our service projects around the world. Our 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes. With donations like yours, we’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases. Your donation also trains future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthens local economies.
