Let’s Move the Needle
2020/21 Annual Campaign
Once a year ROTARY/One seeks your support for its service projects through the Annual Campaign. The money donated now greatly affects the club’s service budget in future years. The ongoing financial and personal impact of COVID19 will be massive and unprecedented and we want to be prepared. Please help us increase our impact on the people and communities we serve by giving to the 2020-2021 Annual Campaign Fund through the ROTARY/One Foundation and The Rotary Foundation (TRF) of Rotary International.
The ROTARY/One Foundation supports the Rotary Club of Chicago’s service projects. This year the Foundation will provide more than $173,000 to fund the club’s projects. In addition to pledging to our club foundation, we also ask you to donate to TRF. Your donation to TRF comes back to the club in the form of available grants that are administered by District 6450. We already have received more than $4,800 in matching grants from the district this year.
Our campaign goals are donations of $75,000 and 100% ROTARY/One member participation.
Please consider giving at whatever level you can. And if you are not a Paul Harris Fellow, see below to learn about the special Paul Harris Fellow Campaign Incentive available to ROTARY/One members.
If you’d like to set up monthly payment installments, receive an invoice for your donation, or complete a donation pledge card, please contact email@example.com or 312-372-3900.
Another year, another chance to impact our community! Once a year the Rotary Club of Chicago seeks your support for its foundation and service projects through the annual campaign. This year the ROTARY/One Foundation will provide over $140,000 to the Rotary Club of Chicago for its service projects. Your donations to the annual campaign directly support these projects and help the club have positive impact on our community. Your donations further advance the mission of the ROTARY/One Foundation which is to secure the resources necessary to support the service mission of the Rotary Club of Chicago.
All donations made to annual campaign go toward member’s recognition as a Ches Perry Fellow. Donations of $1,000 or more, accumulated, are recognized at the level of Ches Perry Fellow.
The Rotary Foundation
When you give to The Rotary Foundation (TRF), your support comes back to ROTARY/One in the form of grants administered by District 6450. To encourage contributions to TRF, this year the club is offering a Paul Harris Fellow Campaign Incentive and will match your donation to TRF with a 2 to 1 point match for each dollar contributed (see below for details).
Donating means supporting the TRF seven areas of focus: clean water and sanitation; literacy; the environment; maternal and child health; disease prevention and treatment; peace and conflict resolution and economic and community development.
Campaign Incentive: As a campaign incentive and to help achieve recognition levels as a Paul Harris Fellow in The Rotary Foundation (TRF), ROTARY/One will match your contribution to The Rotary Foundation at Rotary International by up to 667 points on a 2 for 1 match, if you donate to the ROTARY/One Foundation Annual Campaign AND to The Rotary Foundation (Rotary International). In other words, if you are not currently a Paul Harris Fellow with Rotary International for $333 with a 2 to 1 match from the club, you would attain your first recognition.
