By End of June: Our Future Vision- Rotary International has a program called "Every Rotarian, Every Year". GH Rotary has pledged to raise the minimum of $100/Rotarian in our club. This is a $10,000 goal. This money stays at RI for 3 years and then is MATCHED and RETURNED TO US for a total of $20,000 for our club to use in 4 years. Additionally, RI is requiring 100% participation by 2017 to be eligible for Grants to our club for projects. This means that if we want grants for water projects or community projects for our Rotarians we MUST be generating a $100 donation to RI from every Rotarian by 2017.
