Today's Rotary Foundation Minute is provided as a reminder to ALL of us that the Foundation is the primary way in which we are involved in the 4th avenue of service - International Service.
The "Matching Grants" program of the Foundation assists Rotary Clubs and districts in carrying out humanitarian international service projects in cooperation with Rotarians in another country. Whether its service roads, wells, reservoirs, dams, latrines, toilet blocks, or water supplies, Matching Grants programs are the "down-to-earth" projects that make such a difference to the truly poor of the world. Unfortunately, demand for Matching Grants far outstrips our current resources. This is why the Every Rotarian Every Year is so critical. With nearly 1.2 million members world-wide, the Foundation COULD be
receiving and allocating $120 million or more each year instead of our current $90 million that is available now.
