ImageThis Wednesday we had our incoming D.G., Bill Robson join us accompanied by assistant D.G. Linda Coyle  and Rotary International Liaison, Dean Rohr.  Bill's presentation focused on the great work done through the Rotary Foundation since it's inception in 1917.  The Rotary Foundation has spurned many programs starting with the first grant which was to the International Society of Crippled Children, now the Easter Seal initiative. The Foundation has also developed programs to support Ambassadorial Scholars, Group Study Exchanges, Vocational Training teams, 3H Grants, Polio Plus and Peace Scholars to name a few. Bill also explained how funds are raised and managed. Foundation and District Grants are funded from the investment income from the Foundation Fund.  The Fund was originally set up so that there is no erosion of Principle, only investment income is spent, however due to recent pressures in the Investment world, some changes are being contemplated to ensure the program continues to be sustainable. The new moto for the Rotary Foundation is "Doing Good in the World" and he hopes that there is continued support for OUR Foundation.
