The coming holiday season will remind us just how fortunate we are to live where we live and enjoy the blessings we’ve received. But it is also a time to remember those less fortunate and our opportunity to improve their lives through donating to The Rotary Foundation. Now is a great time to help grow giving in our districts by reminding our Rotarians, especially those who’ve given in the past, about this opportunity to share their blessings.
Tyler Stokesbary, our Annual Giving Officer for Zones 30 & 31 has recently shared with current district leaders the details on the Three Year Thank You Campaign. It is designed to show the impact of donor’s prior gifts to the Annual Fund. Click here to see your District’s progress report, or here to see examples of how your district can run its campaign to reach donors who gave three years ago. It is worth reminding them that their gifts to the Annual Fund three years ago have been used up and it is time to give again.
