November is The Rotary Foundation Month

November is The Rotary Foundation month. The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. Since it was founded more than 100 years ago, the Foundation has spent more than $4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world. The Rotary Foundation helps Rotary members to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace by improving health, providing quality education, improving the environment, and alleviating poverty. 

Club Foundation Chair Mike Kato has issued limited time incentives for members that contribute to PolioPlus in the month of October and November:

  • The West Honolulu Rotary Club will gift you 1 Paul Harris Fellow Point for each dollar of your contribution (up to $250 cumulative for PolioPlus and The Rotary Foundation). For example, if you contribute $50, you will earn 100 Paul Harris Fellow Points, instead of just fifty.
  • Any member that contributes in October and November will be entered into a special drawing to earn 200 additional Paul Harris Fellow points that I will gift to the winner (to be announced at our Annual Xmas Dinner).
