ROTARY/One Foundation

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.
