Please Consider Making a Contribution to
Our Local Foundation
It's time for our Foundation to raise money to help us to continue to do good in our community and in the world. This past year we donated to numerous good causes in the Rapids area including United Way, our Special Needs Boy Scout Troop, Rotary Ramps, Neighborhood Table, WRCT Summer Youth Theatre, as well as youth scholarships both for our local students plus a student in India and one in Tanzania, plus more! 
We are asking each of our members to consider making an annual gift to our local Foundation. We have two goals:
• Raise a minimum of $7500;
• Have 100% of our Club's Rotarians contribute. 
To make this happen, our suggested contribution is $275 per Rotarian, but we just ask that you give as you can -- either more or less. No gift is too small. No gift is too large. Help us help others!
You should have received an email last week with more information and a form to use to send in with your contribution. Save the stamp and bring your contribution to the meeting this week, or snail-mail it this month to 941 Huntington Ave #157, Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54494. If you have any questions, see either
Matt Ironside mdironside@uwalumni.com or
