It’s a District managed scheme to provide structure for regular individual (and other) donations to The Rotary Foundation.
⇒ It involves a commitment to an annual donation by Rotarians (and others) of $100.
⇒ An annual ongoing donation is encouraged but not obligatory – individual financial circumstances can and do change!
Any Rotarian, other individual or group wishing to support Rotary’s humanitarian work. It can also be a spouse, other family member, friends or business associates, a company, corporation or organisation, a social/sporting group or club.
The satisfaction of knowing without doubt that this donation to charity is really doing some good through Rotary’s humanitarian projects. A lapel badge is also provided to members of the Centurion Club.
Every dollar donated is used in projects.
⇒ The interest earned from the investment of the funds is used for administrative costs.
⇒ After 3 years, 50% of the funds return to our District as District Designated Funds, to be further invested in our own District’s humanitarian projects.
Money donated to the Trust is invested for 3 years, during this period the interest earned pays the costs of running the Foundation. At the end of the 3 year period fifty percent of the capital is returned to the District as District Designated Funds.
⇒ The Government rules relating to the tax allowance on donations require the money to be used for humanitarian purposes in listed developing countries. So, your $100 can help alleviate suffering and inequality in the world.
⇒ Although this is a Rotary charity, membership is open to all, not just Rotarians.
